    Motorbike motors into cars? Can it be done legally in nsw?

    As the title says, interested in the legality of putting a bike motor into a small car? Anyone in the know?

    No, can't be done due to the emissions regs.
    Though I guess if you were willing to spend enough to prove it passed the requirements it might be possible.

      I thought they'd got 2nd gen Busa motors approved?
      "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

        Not AFAIK.
        The Clubbies use them but only for the track. It's a shame as a 'Busa-engined one would be a good thing I reckon.

          I dont get it

          if the engine passed emissions in the bike and all you do is swap the engine from bike to car why would the emissions be an issue

          unless its a new car the engine is going into


          ???????????????????????

            I think bike emissions requirements must be really low, otherwise how would carbed motors still pass?

              Bikes don't have to pass emissions.

                  you could do it provided you get emissions tests passed.

                  then they may make up some other shit to stop it passing.

                  you still have to mount it to a box that will handle the tractive efforet due to 2 tyres instead of one. and get a drive shaft setup.

                      You're overthinking it - there are plenty of examples of bike engined cars getting round with the integral gearbox, and it's surprisingly easy to set up a driveshaft on them.

                        there was an escort on jewtube with a turbo fairyblade donk in it. sort of went ok.it looks like win to me. they'd just adapted a driveshaft onto the countershaft of the bike 'box.
