Although, I see your diesel idea, and raise you a VAG 1.9/2.0 TDi engine ;)

Could be good!

And I paid £900 (about $1500?) for a VW Bora 1.9TDi last year (Think they kept calling it Jetta all the way through in the states?)

$1500 is not bad, around here they go for like $2500 for just the engine, then you need to find a transaxle, all the wiring. By the time it's all said and done, I can have a hell of a lot better petrol engine.

BTW here's a better pic of the bike. It's not a bad looking bike, but the engine is just pure honda, it's not fast, doesn't get good gas mileage, and I can't convert it to EFI because factory charging system is just about worthless and can't be upgraded, and it's a 5 speed instead of a 6 speed. I modern kawi engine would improve this thing by a lot and would be a cool project.
