Joke aside, put at least a front suspension and disc brake.

Front suspension has been added, I'll deal with disc brakes on the next build!

Just a cheap Chinese 50cc, part of the popular kit sold on eBay. I have a 66cc that I will modify heavily before installing on the next build!

Hate to rain on your parade but I have since modified it to a pneumatic engine fueled by a Scuba tank and 400 psi from my fridge compressor... :D But actually, I am experimenting with air engines again and I want to build an air bike... had a dream last night that I made a "hybrid" gas engine/compressed air engine bike, and it was quite satisfying. But, in no way shape or form does that coincide with my feelings for hybrid cannons... :wink:

On the topic of those doodads, I wouldn't bother touching the carby, not much gain there really. Whip the head off, tidy up the ports with a dremel, chuck on a banana pipe if you're really keen, then drop a few teeth on the rear sprocket if it accelerates well. Should up the top speed. Then buy a motorbike because motorbikes are awesome

All things I am considering on my next bike! Now that I have a machine shop, I want to CNC a high comp head as well, and I plan on chopping off the back end of the frame and adding a rear suspension 8) should be a pretty sweet ride. Taking inspiration from the holy grail of motorbikes.

Couple of CF SCUBA tanks, that would be an interesting project actually. Not as power dense as a hybrid, of course ;) but if you used a turbine instead of a reciprocating engine it would sound pretty neat.
