Very nice. Was this an all custom job or was this based on an existing frame? I really like it.

Let me know how plating it works, I have doubts that it could be considered street legal since most ATV type tires are not DOT approved (I have seen ONE set that claims to be, which are meant for street used UTV's). That's in addition to needing turn signals and perhaps other niceties that are considered necessary to be street legal.

I don't know how fast it will go as currently geared, however, when I was involved in the Mini-Baja back in '92 and '93, those little 8 hp engines would move some of those buggies between 15 and 30 mph (I believe some hit 30 mph, my memory is not to be relied on, though). With something that light you should be able to hit at least 30 mph.

I bet fast enough to hurt yourself. I remember my buddy had an old mini-bike frame like this was back in the sixtys he took the motor off his old bug kart and the motor happened to be a Power Products AH-58 way to much power for a little bike with no suspension.
His maiden voyage was a disaster he took it out on the road and grabbed a handfull. Well needless to say we had to go and scrape him off the road can you say super roadrash man was his dad ****** at him. Ah yes the good ole days youth good times at its finest.
