I would be interested in hearing from anyone experienced with high performance versions of these 50cc engines. Best I can find is the DeNardis 10+ hp 50cc water cooled, 2-cycle engine.

An Aprilia 50cc was used in John and Eric's amazing 150 mph 50 cc streamliner.

Hey, Sum:

I did see that Aprilla and it's encouraging it will take turbocharging. Augidog got me thinking about all this (but not taking time or treasure away from the lakester) so I began with the engine. Seems like there are two or three good contenders for power.

Holy smokes, I just saw the Parilla IAME 50cc stage 3 water cooled engine. 17.5 HP to the rear wheel!

"more from less" is a whole 'nother world, and can be a lot of fun. I lived on this bike for 2 years, with a 40cc Tanaka "Pure Fire" (it has a real catalytic converter)...camped all over WA State, took the ferry to Alaska for a year, came back, rode Chuckanut Drive, and crossed the North Cascades. Prostate cancer put a stop to that, or I'd still be out there.

 cheers happy Friday, all  cheers

maybe it's only on my Android tablet, but the geocities link is redirecting like a mofo.

I don't (currently) own a Buick, but which icon is that?

(They don't make Oldsmobiles, Mercurys and Dodge trucks any more?)

Augidog, IO came very close to something you can do to your bike that should make a measurable difference. There are an enormous amount of wind tunnel tests conducted over the years that universally show marked aero improvement by using an aero front wheel. That HED three spoke Mayoman displayed on his pursuit bike is  not that expensive when purchased used and would help a great deal. If you don't want to buy a new wheel, you can get big moon discks for your current wheel. Only downside is what IO said and that it will be harder to go straight in a cross wind. But of all the singular aero improvements a bicycle benefits from, an aero front wheel is the best.

John
I picked up on that, plus I've seen some demos. I'm going to start with a backwards fender, and try shielding the wheel about halfway to the axle.

Thank you, folks...and that means you too Mayoman. I did take note of your opinion on my fairings. Thanks, Elmo, I deserved that.

OK, so no fairing, and just an old guy with a leatherclad paunch. At the least, I know he'll be smiling, so long as the bike gives him 6 hassle-free runs.

"Glad I am on the long track." Hey now, we'll only be a couple minutes, and I don't expect we'll be leaving any bits and pieces laying about. I did just fine in 2008, and nobody seemed to mind having us around.
  cheers
