We Put a 6.5HP Lawn Mower Engine on a Sport Bike

A fan gave us a 2003 Honda 919 sport bike! We harvested the powerful 120 horsepower engine to install on an upcoming cross kart 2.0 project we're building, leaving us with a street bike motorcycle frame and no engine. We decided to install a Harbor Freight Predator 212cc engine on the Honda 919! This Harbor Freight motorcycle swap is a hoot!

Thanks for Watching!
