what do you get when you breed a 250cc quad with a zx6r bike? a mad thing sure to make you grin. :lol:
the problem is the engine's too tall to fit in the frame, if you alter the bottom frame tubes there's not ground clearance and if you alter the top frame tubes the tank and plastics won't fit. so our solution is cut the frame in half horizontally :shock:, mount the engine unit and refit the top half of the frame on 5" extentions. then of course the rear shock, front shocks and it seemed everything else needed extending too :shake:. we finally got there though and added loads of bracing everywhere as we'd heard these things break their frames easily and this one is gonna be seriously fast so that wasn't an option. here's a few pics of what we did. the owner's having it back to 'tinker' so no doubt it'll be back once he has a list of things he can't do.

the exhaust was fun, we had to chop it into it's component parts and start from scratch juggling the down pipes for the best positions then trimming them all to the same end length to refit the collector parts. finally the radiator which went in using it's original hoses :tup: and yes we're told they are bent like that as standard.:shocked:

There was one from Australia(I think) that was built using Subaru Impreza running gear,now that would be fast as f*****.
but it would be too big so look funny and we don't want that do we :lol: and i wouldn't bet on it in a race with this thing. :tup:

That was a bmw isetta a 4 wheel one as the 3 wheelers are rare and worth a mint. Anyway I digress the one your talking about had a honda CBR250 engine fitted to it or this one
