But the purpose of the thread was to see some cool and totally unnecessary top end swaps. for no real reason other than i was bored. I just like seeing whacky moped stuff. A moby top end on a derbi bottom end, having taken care of their differences in stroke, stud spacing, and connecting rod diameter, would be a cool thing to see, despite it being absolutely ridiculous.
Like, what if you were trapped on an island with 2 broken engines, one with a working top and one with a working bottom?
THATS what i wanna see. Or pretty much anything out of the ordinary.
