Ok, I have had this little bike for about 4 years now. http://www.sirius.com/~curly/Piglet.jpg It runs like a champ on its little thp motor. It is called a Rupp. Thing will do the quarter mile in 45... maybe 60 seconds. I have had some ideas that i want to run by you guys and see what you think.
1. Turn it into a Harley wanna be named Piglet. With a logo on the gas tanks that says Hardly A Davidson.
2. Turn it into a police bike.

Any ideas as to what I can do with it?

..Before you sell it to him make sure you equip it with "The Vibe Rider " He loves that

Belt? What belt? I can't see a belt. Wait, John, lift your gut out of the way. Oh, O.K., I see it now.

Hey, don't listen to those other bastards. I had a friend with a bike like that along time ago.

Definitely get taller ape hanger bars, trim/clean up all seams on tank then repaint with some type of BS Harley sceme and find someone that does logo work for the tank graphics.

Oh yeah, you will need some type of restrictor plate or something similar to cut about half of the horsepower. In the current configuration your horsepower is to high for a Harley. Also, when you are done you can sell it for 4 times what it is worth.
