I think this just blew my mind... 306cc... can you imagine what that would be like? I can't afford to imagine it but wow, what a motor.

Not sure if it's just me, but is that motor wider? Maybe to fit an extra gear?

The 300cc engine is just what I need, me thinks the wife might object though as looking at the engine someone has been very clever with the aluminium moulding plus a lot of machine work to get the desired result, it looks fantastic, however would it not be cheaper to buy a Harley Davidson ?

The 200 small frame case is about EUR620, and that's cast rather than CNC'd. Not sure which process would be cheaper. The cylinder kit for it is EUR590. I imagine that most of the other parts are unique as well, including the clutch Patrick wondered about... maybe all up it might be EUR4,000? Who knows?

Edit: Just saw on Scooterotica the BSG Corse smallframe CNC'd case cost about EUR3000 a year or so ago... so better revise that estimate up... way up.

That mad ITALIAN (not German) that does falc was looking at doing a full T5 engine. Long strike, custom strengthenedgears and clutch, bout 200cc and 40bhp. Plug and play. Just mount the thing. 3 grand or so he reckoned. That's the one I would want

I've seen one on Scooterotica that had a thick plate bolted to the case on the original stud holes, and new studs screwed into the plate. Can't remember what cylinder that was for.

If someone can read Italian, or find a better translation than google...

http://et3.it/topic/61573-bsg-px-305cc/

From my interpretation of google's translating, a few problems are the Christmas tree and cruiciform under that much power. Amazing though, I guess it pops wheelies at anything more than 1/4 throttle.

Even more impressive is that it's air cooled.

For some reason, thinking of this thing taking on MotoGP bikes puts a smile on my face.

Wow that's actually a brilliant solution. Long as you have enough meat to port the casing/plate to match the new top end it's. Ideal

I think that a longer rod was used to overcome the thickness of the plate... from (sketchy) memory.

That's actually Lake Gardiner, South Australia. He's had trouble finding somewhere to practice for these sort of runs and he ends up making adjustments at the event. The PX doesn't have any aerodynamic aids, and unlike the 100mph Scooter events they run in the UK where they compete on aeroplane runways, it's on salt... which would have to make a real difference. Many of the higher-placed scooters in the UK are also cut down, semi-prone types. He had to get the rules altered to allow him to run 10" wheels, something that they had never had before at that event. He has a supercharger to go on but ran out of time to get it set up this year. He told me also that ideally he should have 70kg of lead on the front for stability but decided on 40kg as a compromise. Really interesting guy to talk to.

So a 300cc bike would be nuts with it's 0to60 times but it looks impossible for a vintage Vespa could will ever go 100MPh down a freeway. Personally I wouldn't want to. Too fast on an old school scooter.

Claude, there are a few folks that broke 100mph on a vintage.

In that article the dude mentions he thinks he needs 35hp at 9500rpm with his gearing to pull 100mph. A quick youtube search pulls up a dyno of someone getting 47hp at 12500rpms with a 150cc bsg smallie motor. I would imagine if properly tuned, the possibilities of a 300cc motor such as this in the right hands could pull 100mph with not too much thought.
