I'm not planning to buy one from them, but I'm going to make my own. After checking around I found out complete motor kits with everything you need are available for as little as $115 shipped. I think it looks like fun. It meets my main criteria for fun anyway, it burns gasoline. Total cost is estimated to be under $300.

If anyone has any experience with these things I'd love to hear about it before I get started.

That's funny. I've got an old beach cruiser and plan on using a motor kit and as many HD parts as I got laying around to build my own modern Whizzer! Need something to do this winter anyway.

That's funny, I like to use Harley parts on all my bikes too.
