to be honest im surprised that this has turned into a pissing war about what qualifies as a moped...pulling the "in the spirit" ????. This bike is already walking a thin line between moped and motorcycle and any performance enhancements would probably tip the scales away from a legal moped...making in the spirit irrelevant.

My post clearly stated my desire to modify the puch magnum I acquired.

That being said I was hoping to discuss fabrication, structural, and performance pros and cons.

The only really productive comment so far has been that I could gain similar hp from the gila kit...but that doesn't get me the added gears I want.

I chose the gsxr50 motor as a potential swap because of its similarity to a larger displacement lifan motor but without the weight and with a better power curve for the road.

If anyone has some suggestions about the structural integrity of the magnum frame, the capacity of the brakes, potential motor swaps...and any other comments about how such a engine swap would be beneficial or detrimental to riding this bike I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks
