    Hello all,

    Thanks

    indeed. both the Fiat 500 and the austin mini are great frame donor :)
    Hayabuza engine first choice. but could be a Yamaha R1 or even GSXR. (or anything with strong gearbox that will handle a higher weight than the original bike)
    Framed chassi best option aswell.

    Need to look at a reverse gear too, plenty off kits out there too
    One I always wanted to do was a fait 126 puddle jumper with an uno turbo engine and box set in

    I have seen few crazy Smart wheeling videos :p that project will need to be prior 1979 registration to be eligible.
    it will definitely need to have the reverse kit on. I looking for a good package in good condition. missed some in the past. I'm not in hurry.

    For now, I'm cruising around with that FWD 4FTE roadster. but this will be sold if I find what I'm looking for.
