    Not a rock bouncer but a fully independent suspension crosskart with a motorcycle engine.
    The issue is, I have front and rear suspension off a CanAm 1000R side by side, Fox shocks, discs, reservoir, hubs and all. It has shaft input on the diff so, I need a streetbike engine with shaft drive.
    Does anyone know a place to buy a used streetbike engine? I almost bought a whole Goldwing for $650 today but, I'm a cheap ass and still looking.

    I've got a friend with a bike shop and he has parts bikes but it's a bit far from you. If you can find a wrecked or abandoned C-10 Kawasaki Concours, they are cheap and I used to give the Squids on crotch rockets attitude adjustments. 998 cc and shaft drive.

    I've always wanted to do this. Let us know how it turns out.
