Holy moley $271 + the cost of the engine.

Just out of interest, why not a motorbike engine? I'm curious as to why some people avoid them.

the engine was given to me for free. i had this engine for number of years and im constantly modifying it. it more of a learn process i guess. in the future i would to start on bike engine. plus like kazkepox said it's so cool to see these little engines perform so well. i thought the lash caps would be good investment so i got them.

Because really, Not everyone can go find a motorcycle engine and mock it all up. He decided to modify his engine like many others and hes learning. It also adds peace of mind when you build your own engines...
