do dealers sell replacement engines? I would like to pick one up if they are cheap enough. does anyone out there have an engine up for sale with low hours? I have the frame and all just need an engine for project bike, band I do not want to buy those copies sold off of ebay
I think I can get one for $400 new from my dealer with my discount. I may be wrong though. I thought thats what my cousin or somebody told me they were told. For $400 it probably doesnt come with the stator, kick starter, shifter, and none of the intake.
Classic Honda sells the Honda Nice 110cc motor made in Thailand. They are longer and wider than an XR50 motor, will bolt right into the frame, but other modifications will have to be made to make all the componentry fit.
Plus, you can purchase those Honda Nice Motors online at other places for $1100.00
Classic Honda is high on there prices. In fact, the Whole Honda Nice 110s sells for $1100 brand new in Thailand, and the Honda dealers in Thailand are stripping the motors, electrical, and misc componentry sellng them for $1100, and sell the rest of the bike and make a tidy profit.
For $1900, you can bore and stroke your 50 motor and have more power.
The Honda NICE is a top quality engine and is starting to be used a lot in the UK Monkey bike scene. The cheapest you can buy one here for is $1700 from funky-monkey.co.uk. Although you can buy a whle Honda NICE bike for £3145 !!
The engine is bomb proof, with a good clutch (off the primary) and 4 speed manual. There are 56mm barrel and pistons available from DRP for around $340 which will get you to 137cc and about 80mph on the roads!!
At a German monkey bike event last year they had NICE engines on dynos giving out 20hp - although there is debate as to what they heads they were running....
Also need to bear in mind that they are quite a bit heavier than a stock xr engine so I'm not sure how that woudl effect the handling.
I'd be interested to know where you can get one for $1100 as I'm looking to purcahse one soon for my Monkey bike.

Yah it does I'am into collecting old Honda's especialy minitrails and Elsinores. I love riding on the street with my fiddy i have several mini's set up for street cruising and dirt moshing . it 's great to see the mini sport growing world wide . I think the XR craze gave us older mini riders more exsposure and now we have more parts to trick out our bikes too.
I'am a bike builder and will have complete racers out soon . I already have a pit bike out on the market it is the RC70 minicross you can see it at www.rcmotorsusa.com it has a street legal kit availible . let me know if you guys would like it sold in the UK too so I could hook up some dealers in The UK.
I also get tons of parts like the Lifan motors for better prices than you see on the net.
