    Mini-bike Kits

    I am in the process of finishing up an Azusa kit. Getting ready to install the motor within a few days. I bought the 6" kit directly from Azusa, as I can drive directly to them. If I could do it all over again...I would wait for a nice roller frame to pop up on Craigslist instead of going...

    What A Nightmare

    I feel your pain. I had a terrible time working on the motor for my Cat. It has been a while since I have touched a small engine, so I would work on it, put it back on the bike and would have to take it right off again, all while trying to hunt down little pieces that I was sure I set right in...

    Cat Slingshot 350 Purchase...

    That is what I was thinking too. The paint is about a 10 footer. It has some scratches, but I think it ads to the character of the bike.

    Cat Slingshot 350 Purchase...

    Thanks... I am glad to hear that a 3.5 will do all right. I'm not trying to race anyone. I was worried, because I really do not like the way the Honda sits in there. It seems dangerous... there would be no hiding from the dang clutch and chain. Unfortunately, I will have to eat a shipping...

    Is 3.5 HP Enough?

    Ok, so I am looking to put a brand new motor in my Azusa. Would a 3.5 HP Briggs be enough to drag a 200lb knucklehead around? I'm having a hard time finding any motors that would fit just right in my Azusa frame. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. :biggrin:

    Thanks Randy...I thought about going with a separate tank, but the dang motor still sits in there so wide. I eventually want my little boy to be able to ride it too and I'm thinking I might need a smaller engine. I guess you learn as you go. This is my first build. I found a place that has...

    Motor Help

    So I just got my Azusa kit back from powder coating and I started getting it back together. Well, I bought a new Honda GX160 for it and it fits, but I won't be able to put gas in it or keep my legs on the bike. Rookie mistake. :shrug: Can anyone recommend a motor that would fit nicely in the...

    Newbie here with a runner now

    Nice looking rig. I wish I could find a nice old school bike like that. Are you planning on giving it a paint job?
