    Bike engined 600

    I really want to do a "BIKE" engine transplant in one or both of my engine-less N600's. It seems everyone has thought about it, but, no one has done it.

    I found this:

    (I wrote the guy, but never heard back.)

    The video doesn't answer any questions on how it works or the details of the install/conversion. I know basics, some firewall and radiator core support mods will have to be made. I'm craving more.

    Anyone have more expirenece or knowledge of such a swap?

    Perhaps you could ask on 1stgencivic, though the answers could be scarce too :? .Why do you want to do the swap on both? have you thought of a 1200 civic engine? Perhaps it could be easier?

    the final roadtest here

    I used a 2 piece (centre bearing) prop shaft
    I'm not in the mechanical trades so some of these tasks are quite daunting, I can see the attraction of a Hayabusa or Honda inline four bike conversion.
    If I can find a N600 engine that would be the next stage for my Z, the original 356cc water cooled was just not much fun - too Civic like.
