Right before the cold weather hit I was following a BMW Isetta on a country road, but something was not right....first of all he was flying around at near 70 mph and then I noticed he had a single swingarm under the rear with a single tire! I followed him to his house and recognized him as a Delco/Delphi Engineer who used to have a Fiat 500 and some other cool stuff. He had removed the original drivetrain and put in a scooter motor drivetrain from a wrecked 80cc bike by fabing up some mounts. Everything bolts in place of the original drivetrain and unbolts in under 1/2 hour!!! He not only gets better FE but goes quite a bit faster too!
