Perhaps someone thinks they're making a point, but it's an expensive way to do it.
Would that thing even move itself?

Dont laugh....a guy in Fairbanks AK built a Briggs powered Harley frame with a cut down Honda engine to use the tranny, jockey shift. Know for a fact he rode it to Anchorage and back...300+ miles each way. What im not certain of though if he was able to make the speed limit or how long it took

Some years ago, before smartphones, I was in a farmers barn looking at some tractors and spotted and old big twin motorcycle in the corner covered in dust. Complete frame and body work, springer front and hardtail rear, all stock. Instead of a big twin engine and transmission was a Honda 350 and a very long chain to the rear sprocket. I asked about it and the farmer said that his brother and put it together and rode it quite a bit for a few years before putting it away.

The video shows him riding it, so it obviously works.

And yeah, we all know nobody wants HP any more, that's a thing of the past.

53 MPH top speed!
Not bad for a $120., 6.5 HP engine.

If you were broke and living in the outback of the outback's hobo canyon and had a blown up Harley carcass laying around AND a lawnmower that still ran (although I have no idea why anyone would need or have a lawnmower in the outback of the outback's hobo canyon), you could Jerry Rig something like this together and make it all the way to the outback before it totally crapped out on you. Or you could just "walk about" out of there.
