Interesting if a bit quirky project. Very well done, though

Never even fathomed cleaning welds with an end mill in a drill press - some serious work went into that.

Re: turning a 4 stroke into a two stroke

Main advantage in doing this? Btw, "because it's cool" is entirely valid.

Surely a 2T engine in a scooter is going to cause the owner more hassle over the long term, plus a shorter life?

Re: turning a 4 stroke into a two stroke

Nice bit of engineering.
Here's something on a slightly larger scale. I've been following Alan Millyards 6cyl kawasaki Z1 build in Motorcycle Mechanic magazine. Bloke is a genius, he makes it look easy, but far from it.

The late Harry Lindsay converted a Triumph twin to 2 stroke, he tried to explain to me how he did it but Im not the brightest so, no idea.
