 This one started life out as a 49cc pocketbike.  As that was too small for me to really ride I decided to stretch it out a bit.   The picture below shows the frame before and after I altered it to be comfortable to ride.    This bike was sold before I even got it finished.  A neighbor happen to come by while I was still doing the final wiring and bought it from me right then an there.   It had almost a 150 mile range with a full gas tank and had a top speed of about 28 mph with a 200lb person riding it.

With the big fat tires mounted on it, this thing would go though just about any kind of terrain including soft sand.
