The engine set up uses a set of Malossi C-One cases that are based on 50cc Piaggio style cases. They’ve been machined to accept a larger crank and bore so now 98cc. All the kit in there ie crank, gearing and transmission is top spec. I’ve opened up the reedvalve too and used a CR85 vforce 3 reed set up with a 38mm airstriker. The cylinder and pipe are both supplied by Roost but the cylinder has had some additional work done to it to make even more power. It’s not been dynoed yet but it should be somewhere between 35 and 40bhp.

The Alunium frame is made by a company called Kiesler but I’ve modified that too as I have used a wide rear dragster tyre and had to move the engine over to centre the rear wheel, it still need to be welded. I hope to have it up and running this weekend and completed just after Xmas

Found a seat pod of a GP race bike that I liked, I had to make a couple of holes in it to get it to fit

I don't like the front bit so need to modify that and also get my aluminum seat and tank hidden underneath
Stay tuned..............
