Has anyone seen one of these? Not a moped but too cool for O/T

Re: Has anyone seen one of these? Not a moped but too cool for O/T

I’m gonna venture a guess that’s the same or very similar to the Chicken Power motors. I had one of them briefly. I got it to run and it immediately broke the con rod.

Is that a toilet lid for a seat???

They are Chinese chicken power clones.

You can put the rig on any front tire.

That's not too cool for OT, in fact that is what OT was intended for, cool mechanical type stuff that wasn't mopeds.

Boring people turned it into their personal religious-political bickering space and not enough people post cool stuff like this there so it takes over.

Not Chinese at all. American and British I believe. These engines were kind of intended for rc airplanes,but were adapted to alot of different applications. Jimmy derista got a drill powered by one and sent it to mustie1 to fix. And then to hand tool rescue. Very cool engines, lotsa neat tools had em'. I feel like this was a one off or very limited production.

Loiks more robust than Chinese. Would it burn regular premix? Not rc fuel? (edited)

It's awesome how on this forum there's people who literally know everything about anything. Any idea of the top speed of this silly thing?

27cc engine, you can only imagine, not fast enough to evade a nipping poodle.

Re: Has anyone seen one of these? Not a moped but too cool for O/T

I was going to say not chinese at all. Very well built 2t motors. I used to have a tiny generator with one of those engines. Think purred like a kitten a d put out like 200 watts.

There are 2 at the shop identcal to that color and all...

I read labels...

These were used to chase down free flight airplanes back in the day, I haven’t seen one used since I was little kid, one of the old guys we use to fly with had one he would use It to retrieve his high-start.

Re: Has anyone seen one of these? Not a moped but too cool for O/T

It's like a minibike almost. I doubt they are even road legal. If I had an airplane I would use one to transport luggage to the plane or maybe ride across the street to a deli.

If it meets the min seat height requirement and has lights and horn its a legal 50cc thing in CT.
