Hi 123-GTT

V-twin should make a nice mod!

I've been looking at bike engine conversion for a while now (bought my 126 then put it straight in storage until I had the space!).

Still trying to decide between straight 4 or v-twin, but the v-twins have a bit more torque.

My plan is to build an engine cradle with a chain diff and convert the rear to double wishbones with pick up points off the cradle/cage. Lots of examples ofbike engine conversions on small cars on tinternet. Some people try to retain standard rear hubs and use custom drive shafts. I'm looking to ditch them and go wide track and use escort/sierrra bits.

Z-cars mini conversions are a nice example of a quality conversion.

Due to move to our double garage (there's a house too) in September so hoping to get onto this properly then... angle grinder at the ready.

Get some pics of your project up when you've got some progress.
