    4 Strokes..
    The next idea was a Makita 25cc 4 stroke...
    Purchased brand new, it promised so much..
    Incredibly quiet, efficient...
    Before I stripped the GSR25 down to do my Mods..
    I made an adaptor plate to mount this to the geo engine fan cover..
    Slotted it on to the chassis..... and nothing... These Makita 4 strokes do not rev very high...
    Add the fact that it is popping half as many times as a 2 stroke, it does not have enough torque to pull a higher gear either.
    So once again we move forward, and look to the next engine choice.

    More cubes........
    With small engine option a non starter...
    We need more CCs.........
    With so many of these at my disposal...

    It would be a nice ride with a 43cc shove at the back...
    With a stable of GSR40s, it would not be a very interesting build with another Zen G43L engine.
    We need to get out of the box, and look deeper.........
    How about turning it on its head and fitting The G43Ls Twin brother...

    Mirror Mirror.......
    The engine on the right is the upside down weed wacker from Zenoah..
    It had the petrol tank on top and the spark plug at the bottom..
    The carb was a gravity fed float carb similar to the SHA Dellorto as fitted to Blatas etc..
    Once all the Weed wacker stuff is removed.. it is a G43L with the cylinder on the other way round..
    So once mounted the carb would be at the front and exhaust at the back..
    One interesting detail...... it has an LH/Rc type coil mount.....
    So could be fitted with a myriad of the high rev limit coils..
    Its still a G43L engine... so its not really out of the box thinking..

    Good Head..
    It would be so tempting to fit this to one of the G43L engines...
    And call it a day.
    It would look so good..
    BUT... I am saving it for my GSR40 TSi

    Stratospheric rise.....
    We have come this far with the CCs.. Then why not push a little further..
    45cc would be different, a bit more power...
    How about a Zenoah 45cc Strato charged engine...
    Could be interesting.. bolts straight on.. Hemi head..

    Flying high......
    I feel that the amount of time and effort that has gone in to the BLACK CHERRY ..
    It deserves something better than a scrappy looking 45cc weed wacker engine..
    Lets take it to new heights...
    If only there was a way of bolting this on to a Goped......

    This project can only go one way....
    All the way to the top........
    The logical conclusion would be this... When you simply must have the best...
    Accept no substitute....

    I enjoyed the build up on what engine you were gonna use. I saw when you first posted thr geo motor.Then I saw the strato. I was waiting for a 60 to pop up. I'm still not convinced your sticking with the 60. Haha

    I think that the 62cc is the final engine on the BLACK CHERRY ..
    The whole build, sort of worked round that.......
    Of course there are many other builds under way.......
    How does this take your fancy..........

    The 60 is perfect for this build. Everything you've done has been top notch, bravo Mr. Tea. I am envious of your skills as a machinist and fabricator. What I like most about this build is that you don't seem to have any outside influences... its all been you. Hats off to you sir.

    Over the last few weeks I have been playing catch up on here..
    I have gone back thru as many threads as my brain will take without exploding..
    It is interesting how a lot of the ideas I have come up with, have been done by others..
    To an almost identical end result..
    I think it is one of the things that makes Gopeds so much fun...
    It makes the mind fertile, and feeds the inner engineer.

    Get a GRIP man.
    The deck is finished, but because of all the lacquer, polishing and wax.
    It was going to be interesting trying to stay on without slipping off..
    I thought I would keep the grip tape simple, and original.
