there is no reason why you couldnt take a 1hp engine and make it go 30+, its the same engine as the rest of them, just built with primarily different cylinder set ups

simple things like replacing the head gasket with a thinner one and opening up the air flow and matching the jet, and removing the small baffle from the pipe all should make it hit close to 30 if not more,

plus there is no reason why the bike shouldnt run without an air filter, you just need to compensate the jet

it sounds to me like its more of an air leak or points issue, like earlier mentioned, if the points arent set properly it wont start but could still yield spark, 120 psi is enough to most likely run, but nowhere near as much as you need to run WELL, spray some soapy water pon the cylinder and pedal it over, if you see bubbles you probably have an air leak

putting a speed kit on anything completely negates HP
