I've seen that on here before, and I like it a lot. Looks like a budget Hellcat.

The only thing that bothers me is the belt tensioner on the inside of the belt on the driven side. That looks like it'd cause vibration off the belt teeth, and sooner or later get ripped off by the drive from the engine. Tensioners are usually on the bottom chain run. All it's doing is keeping the belt off the banana swingarm. IMO, it's be better to fit a straight swingarm and ditch the skateboard wheel.

Thats very cool, looks like the frame is comprised of PLATES of steel rather than tubing
