It looks pretty simple to me, you could probably draw your own blueprint. I would use bigger tires front and rear and much wider rears if I built something like that. and probably a Tecumseh star or single cylinder snowmobile engine for the motor.

Pic #1 on that site shows pretty much everything you'd need to see. It looks like they're just using some small, square tubing for most of it.

You could just mod a minibike frame for a wide swing arm if you wanted a 3 wheeler.

Looks pretty simple as others have said. I would use a motorbike engine so that you get 4-6 gears and a clutch for some REAL fun!
