    I`m going to replace the motor in my Barracuda from the FZR600 with 93hp to a FZS1000 with 143hp. I found a cheap one in E-bay with the bolts holes broken out of the motor block for 300, Euro`s . So I welded those up and grinded the block back up so that it looks ok.

    I wanted to post the rest from the pic`s ,first time just didn`t get it right. So here are the rest. Before I write any more ,just want to say I`m from Franklin Pa. came over here to Germany while I was in the Army ,that was for 25 years. So it`s been awhile that I`ve writen anything in Englisch. Not shur what you call this but I made it on the lath to help center by drilling the new holes. Cut new threads for the bolts just have to get some new bolts ,and the motor is as good as new.

    That looks real good. How much is 300 Euros in greenbacks? What kind of country will you ride in?

    Thanks for the comments guys, nice to have someone who appricate something like this . Not that many guys here in Bayern do something like this. The doller to euro is 1.33 so thats 399. $ for the block . To where I ride , I have a gravel pit where I can play around and hope to do a little racing next year. I forgot to say that when I started this buggy I was making 2 of them, but that was to much work for one, so I hope to finish that to this winter to.

    Sharp dude!

    I thought Germany was pretty strict on being enviromentally friendly? Can you tear up the country side or what?
