What motor is it rockin?

DR200 Suzuki. It's not going to set the world on fire...but I only have a small area to ride it around, so it gives me a smile.

does it have a big cam in it?

Hahaha...I'm not even sure if the cam opens the valves half the time. It's such a rattly pile of shit. But does skids on the lawn, so it's a keeper.

Probably putting out a few more ponies than this lockdown-spec number I knocked together in a couple of hrs on Saturday. Sadly I couldn't find any donor bikes/carts/barrows for wheels so half of the time was jigsawing the epic 7-ply wagon wheels (with stainless tube-bushed, coach screw axles)...

Goes hard for what it is

That's all that is good! Perfectly made and will provide hours of entertainment.

DIY air box, so CV carburetor can run in a slight vacuum.

Yes, yes that is a fuel tank off a kids pocket bike...but fuck, what a difference it makes!

I'm being a pussy, as I'm starting to totally destroy my lawn. It's a lot bumpier than it looks, gets pretty sketchy in a few places, so not wanting to add to the health service burden, I'm taking it easy to remain unharmed.

That's so choice, is that a flying fox I also spy there?

The funny thing is I was really grumpy when I made this as the perfectionist in me wanted to do a good job, but the reality is the kids couldn't give a shit and have been playing with it way more than full effort stuff I've made

Yip. My kids only use it when other kids are here. Otherwise it's hard to pry them away from Tik Tok...

Yip, they like to suck still air. There's a lot of science that I have no idea about - but basically if you have a smaller intake hole in the air box than the carburetor has it creates a flux capacitor effect where the pixies get high and it enables time travel?

*actual results may differ*

Fuck, that just have me full flashbacks of my nana's house when I was 6ish, thing used to billow clouds of unburnt kero when it ran out of gas.. Looked exactly like that.
