    Fun toy for "my kids" cough cough...

    While waiting on parts for my harley, I started a little slightly more achievable project for my kids (okay, maybe I've had more fun than they have on it...).

    Started life as a Go-ped Sport. I made the aluminium deck, rebuilt the motor, replaced the head to increase it from 22.5cc up to 25.8cc, port timed the head (port and polish), added a bigger carb, expansion chamber, K&N filter, larger drive spindle, third bearing support, and a heap of other shit.



    Needless to say it's crazy fast! I'm building a tamer version as my kids can't handle the jandal on it.

    Anyway, a bit of fun and cheaper than a harley

    Hasn't crossed my mind...but now the seeds been planted haha.

    Yes, I found some goped forums and that's where I got my parts from (USA), but I kinda lost the plot and made the motor a little too insane, does over 60km/h and has a monster power band that lifts the front wheel off the ground. I'm 6' 4" and about 95kg and its a handful for me. My 6yr old doesn't stand a chance on it, so I brought another one cheap and will under power this one so she can ride it.

    All good fun though

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    I want to see video of you taking it down the road. Love to see the cops take on it. Either that or take it to the local skate park and use it on the half pipe! You'd get some serious air at 60 kph.

    Honestly looks like an accident looking for a place to happen.

    60 kmh with no real brakes or handling?
    Hope you wear a helmet, gloves, boots etcetera.

    Try it with mud grips and trainer wheels KJ. To get the cows in with that, could be interesting to say the least.
