I think maybe you joined the wrong subculture, friend.

That shit is the ugliest, least mopedy bike I've ever seen.

Re: Tao Tao racer 50 with Honda Hobbit engine subframe swap

Actually in person they don't look that bad except for the stupid small wheel in the back and the 17 inch in the front.That is why I think the Hobbit swap would be cool because it would have a 17 inch wheel in the rear also.As far as the wrong subculture goes.You realize the only people that don't laugh at us about our mopeds are the ones that ride them ,and 90 percent of the general public don't ride them (edited)

It would be an improvement over anything Tao Tao did...go for it.

Re: Tao Tao racer 50 with Honda Hobbit engine subframe swap

I always thought the wheel differences were stupid on rhose. Go and do it Those chinese frames are heavy, though. I actually saw somebody pushing a 50 that was converted to a reverse trike, today.

You should totally do it. I just grafted a Malossi kitted hobbit engine into a child’s four wheeler and it’s hilariously awful. Hobbit engine swaps are really fun

Re: Tao Tao racer 50 with Honda Hobbit engine subframe swap

the taotao racer in question. Honesytl could be kinda fun, probably has decent parts and dimensions but where the fuck you gonna get one. I mean you can get em (I think Walmart even sells em online now) but i'm not gonna pay 1500 bucks for a funny frontend and frame to hobbit swap, I mean you could put that hobbit subframe on anything (see above), so unless you've got a line on a cheap busted taotao racer I don't think this is anything but a funny thought experiment.

Re: Tao Tao racer 50 with Honda Hobbit engine subframe swap

Wow ,that four wheeler is amazing .If I ever find one of those tao tao racers for really cheap I will do it.Maybe one will break down ,and I can get it for cheap.I think they are like $1,500.00 brand new so maybe in a year or two they will start breaking down and popping up for sale cheap.

If I was going to do this, I would just replace the shitty 4t sub with an 2t scoot assy that would blow away a hobbit.

Italet Torpedo/Aprilia Scarabeo had 16/17" rims and enough pep to poop your pants

I've seen one of these in the wild. there's a store that sells taotao bikes in town and I saw guy riding one that wouldn't go over 20mph. he kept doing laps while I was taking my lunch break. very entertaining

Jay, the thing about the quad is you want to ride it but it doesn't want to be ridden. It wants you to be on the ground, bleeding and burned. I kinda think of it like in a science fiction movie when some scientists are trying to play god and animate some inanimate object and they end up creating some horrible sentient blob that immediately begs for death. It's really fun tho

Re: Tao Tao racer 50 with Honda Hobbit engine subframe swap

The rear wheel on the Tao Tao is one of the stupidest things I've seen. The trike makes complete sense to me.
