    My orange bike uses a 20hp engine that is modified quite heavily. It probably makes 30hp or so????


    I have a buddy who has an older sporty, and this little briggs engine with the CVT will out accelerate him (its not a 1200), and run just over 100mph.

    It will be a combination of ERW and DOM - but all mild steel. No tube will be larger than 1 1/4" and no plate thicker than 1/4".
