Just thought some ppl might enjoy. I did end up getting it done, and the little girl loved it.

Yea. This one was for a guy I was working for at the time (I was working at a NAPA store) He wanted it for his grand daughter, and she wanted it pink.

I never actually got a video. I did this project about two years ago. The original engines in both were shot, and trying to get a rebuild was nearly impossible. What I ended up putting in it, was a Suzuki 80 CC dirt bike engine complete with the transmission and everrything, and mounted the snow machine clutch where the chain sprocket was on the engine. I put a hand clutch under the hood, so you could change the gears. It would start just fine with the main clutch engaged when in gear, and the snow machine clutch kept it from driving around until the RPM was picked up. it was actually pretty cool, because if you were in deeper snow you could shift it down to second or first, and it had all kinds of power, and then if you were out on a lake on ice, you could shift it to fifth or sixth (The shifting was done when the machine was not moving, so it was more like a six range transfer case) and the thing would fly at speeds close to 70 MPH.
