Mine is scratch-built from a weedeater motor.  Fun to engineer, but very time consuming.  I just saw this on eBay - what a deal!

Great price!

A friend just built one of those.  It rides pretty well but running flat out for more than 5 miles or so it tends to overheat.
Also,  because I would probably spend a lot of time idling around, I think I would prefer to go with one of the four stroke kits. The four stroke kits seem to last longer but 2 stroke ones are so cheap it almost makes sense to just buy a second motor as a spare and go that route.
