Well, I've had this thing for like 8 or 9 years now and now that I'm older and heavier it doesn't exactly zip me around like it used to on the stock little 49cc motor. It started out life as a 49cc cat eye super pocket bike and now...... Well it's nothing right now but it will be very soon!
Here's what she looked like stock and new

And after a while the engine went to ***** and the plastics were cut up and painted and the frame was messed with and and and and..... Just stuff and things. You guys know the deal. Here is how she sits as of now. I worked together a metal inlay tray I guess you could call it to mount a solar trickle charger and a completely unnecessary fuse panel to wire in lights, and eventually an electric starter for the monstrous 196cc honda clone I'm putting together for the power plant. Uhhh what else is there. I've got some under glow on it just because I can. I'm gonna most likely use some kind of metal or thick plastic screw top water bottle for a fuel tank mounted in the rear since the exaust will run out the side. I've still gotta instal the fuel pump and get another carb stud since I'm missing one. I've got an extended swing arm in the works for it. Gonna do a solid no suspension rear. I'm running a 12 tooth comet torque converter with #35 chain to a 34 tooth sprocket. I want to look at doing my own sprocket for the torque converter, like 20+ tooth for crazy torque and take off. Idk how I'm gonna do that yet. I wanna get it going as is for now. As it sits I've gotta still mount the motor, find a battery, hook up a throttle, bolt up the handle bars, run brakes, mount wheels and tires, build the swing arm, find a decent gas tank, and paint and body work. I'm leaning towards a red and black scheme to match my gsxr. Any comments, insight, suggestions and flames are welcome.

Did a little more work to the bike tonite. Made up a little battery box with some nice vent holes to keep the battery cool. I'm hoping the gap at the front of the box will push cool air across, once it's welded in I'm gonna rubberize it don't worry. I also pulled off the fork and mocked the motor mount pan out of some sheet metal to be replicated in thicker material and welded in.

Ask a friend to help you or buy a cheap welder. all you need is a cheap one to get you started and then upgrade as you get better at welding Very Happy
