Dad had one back in the day, pretty good sled. Had a Yamaha engine in it too, that's a plus.

My dad had one in his late teens. His dad picked it up for him and he fixed it up. My mom was dating him at the time and she claimed it was very smoky. It belched a lot of fumes but it probably wasn't tuned correctly. Anyways, my dad had it for only a month before the track exploded. He couldn't get a new one so he got rid of it.

I dont know what you consider fast, 25mph sound good to ya? If you dont care about keeping it a vintage, I'd put a 440 on it, the sucker will fly literally, they only way around 275-300 pounds!!
