If you can get the engine into a GT250 frame, I will give you three times what you paid for it :P for it.

But your taxes are going to be 10 times more than you paid me.  :-\

you can have it honestly.

I would say the heads are going to be wide for the back.

The rear swinger looks like it is similar to how the GV650 swinger goes in.

I very nearly got an NC30 engine for my bike.

Then I heard one running, and changed my mind. There's no way I can run an illegal engine swap that has that cam gear whine, it'd be spotted a mile off. Currently my bike is performance tuned, but still sounds like Ducati had a go at making a lawn mower, so it doesn't obviously ring out as being non-standard.

Am I being naive to think that a cop wouldn't even notice?

Expected thought process of plod:
"Motorcycle. Loud. *Mentally compares to a Harley*. Less loud. Rough looking. Making gear noises. Probably a bit broken. Balls itch. Moving on."

Cops are usually pretty switched-on in my experience. The 125cc limits have been in place for such a long time, the people who are now police would have been doing the same shit when they were 16, chucking in engines from older, bigger bikes. They got sons that're doing the same too. They know what gies an.

You can if you take your license. I actually think the age limits are a great idea and should be applied to cars too.

Yeah, the rules are in place so that only people who are serious about riding (willing to spend thousands) get on to powerful bikes. It's a deterrent function against people who just want to move about cheaply, from getting on bikes they can't handle, and don't know how to use. I personally have no need for anything more than my 125cc bike, and just recently picked up a 50cc because my 125er is way too much bike for most of the commuting and general stuff I use it for, so I've not bothered tackling the license-getting pay-wall, and wouldn't be much affected whether it's taken away or not.

Couldn't disagree more on cars. I think people who are toss drivers aren't at all helped by the fact that we have this first-car mentality, and the first cars are usually poxy shyte like the Vauxhall Corsa. I cut my teeth in cars like the Ford Capri, BMW E30, Porsche 944, and other scary shit from the 80s that barely made it through safety regs. As a result, I'm now an exceptional driver, confident on both track and street, with my confidence backed by decades of accident-free driving, and a successful season with a race team. I'm not saying drivers these days are bad, not at all, and that's evidenced by the fact that I've not been whacked off my bike in 8 years of riding, so clearly something is working. But age-limiting cars is going to help literally nobody; not people who want to get good in 80s rear-driven sports cars, not people who want to casually learn in their dad's Insignia, not bikers like me who are happy with the drivers today, not anybody.

UNLESS it's an age drop. Give people as young as 14 cars up to say 1.6l and drop the test age down to 16. Start them younger. They'll be better for it.

I was.

So maybe we should get rid of the restrictions on bikes too.
