    my car is just about ready for scrapping so ive decided to make a bike with a whipper snipper motor on it and i wanna get mine as beefy as possible.
    lucky for me i work around the corner from my house, but i couldnt be bothered pedalling up the hill.
    i know a smaller wheel climbs hills better and a larger wheel goes faster.
    i just wanna know of any mods you could do to a whipper snipper engine to make it fully sick.:wax:

    i was kinda hoping to not have to pay for a new engine
    but i did just see one on ebay and it looked pretty good except it was 48 cc (the pigs give you **** if its over 27)
    my mate builds them all the time but he moved up to newcastle he was gonna build one for me.
    ill keep you posted on my progress. anymore suggestions would be helpful.
    maybe when k rudd stimulates me i can get one of those kits

    yeah its 27 here (nsw). my mate who makes them has been to court 3 or 4 times because of them (got off every time) i think im gonna drive it with a wheel rather than chain because im going to mount it with a hinged bracket so you can lift the motor off the wheel and pedal. the cops prefer that,

    I'm currently doing this but on a old birtbike frame with the whipper snipper motor.

    And a while back on hard rubbish i found the whipper snipper and my step dad gave me a chainsaw motor (dident work) but i took the carby off the chainsaw motor and made a Double carby on my whipper snipper but i havent tryed it yet.

    so just wait till hard rubish and someone will be throwing out an old motor.

    If you can get one of the whipper snipper motors with a centrifugal clutch, it will work better. I had an old McCulloch whipper snipper i was always going to use, but it blew up on me and i bought a cheap GMC one... so when it dies, it gets turfed out. I think the law also states that the vehicle should not be capable of speeds over 30kph as well.

    Search some of the zennolith or RC boat forums, those guys make insane power out of the 28 and 33cc engines.
