    It's more than likely this has been posted before but if it has not it's worth watching. The first 40 minutes is a coffee ad, don't that dissuade you.



    A video from the original modder.



    And finally the paint job and final detailing.



    Enjoy!

    Yes, he (the guy who did that N600 build) is active here on the forum right now. His screen-name is "ccrunner". He's currently working on another "Bike Engined Car" conversion which is a late 1950's Berkeley sports car and he's using another 5th Gen VFR800 engine.

    Excellent build and that is not his first one, judging by the work he did on this one. The VFR engine will likley work pretty good once you get it rolling. Would have been interesting to see how he mated up the engine to the drive shaft.

    I owned and drove a "72 NS 600. The 600 cc motor did just fine from a standing start. It would break the drive tires (front) loose in both first and sencond of three gears. The tires were only about 12" in diameter so it didn't take an overwheming ammount of HP to make them spin. I would guess that the whole car weighed less than 800 lbs, based on the fact that a hand full of my college friends picked it up and carried it into a landscape area near the parking lot at the dorm as a joke. I've no idea what the specifications were on the original motor, but it was nowhere near what the V4 800 produces, my guess 1/2?
