Right up my alley! 55 is f'ing suicide on a minibike, though.

Meanwhile- for calc purposes, I will need the overall diameter of the rear tire. Now- does that 7hp have a 3/4" shaft, or 1"? Clutches and CVT's for a 1" shaft tend to be quite a bit more expensive than 3/4". Or, you could do a mower-type belt-tensioner clutch...

Excellent, can't wait to see them! Then, we can get tooth counts, pulley sizes, and everything else we'll need to figure out your gearing.

Why take the centrifugal clutch off? I would leave it unless you are going with a torque converter like Fearlesses go-kart.

Is it one of the newer Schwinn Stingrays? Those things are sweet dude, I saw a video of one on YouTube and they fit a Harbor Freight engine almost perfectly and look just like a mini chopper.

Pics!

You should candy gloss the frame a bright color and re-chrome the fenders if they are all screwed.

Have a look 'round the engine, there's bound to be some numbers on there somewhere- and we can put the mystery to bed. Why are you looking for a new carb? The video was a bit dark- is the carb missing? If it's there, surely you can repair it.

Look for a can of Rust Oleum (I think0 Metallic Blue. Its expensive as poopie, but my friend is using that on the inside of his 1963 F100 with some aluminum (basically silver) paint and it looks classy. If I see his truck ill try and snag a picture.

If the tank thats on the carb doesnt get in the way of anything, you could make your tank, and using a barb fitting tap the tank/carb and have more fuel capacity.

i had thought of doing that, however, the carb that is on it doesn't have seperate controls for the choke and throttle, so i want one that does, and i just dont want the ugly tank there lol
