Harley Sportster with Arctic Cat 500cc twin cyclinder engine
Just videos of initial start up with this newer Sportster that I mounted a 500cc Arcti Cat Engine in. This is a salvage Sporty I bought without a motor. It was such a pain in the ass to get new cases I decided to morph it into a automatic moped on steroids with a 500cc Artic Cat air cooled snowmobile motor. It is oil injected and I was able to use the stock sporty oil tank as the two stroke oil reservoir. Nothing is hacked on the frame. I made a stand alone engine cradle off the existing rubber motor mounts so a guy could covert it back to a Sporty engine in a few hours with no issues. I am anxious to see how it runs.
