What would it be like to have a KZ-style engine in a dirtbike?
Would it work? Why would anyone do something like that? After all the KZ motor is not the lightest power plant in the world – just ask anyone who has ever lifted one out of the frame.
Nonetheless a very loyal fan base for the iconic 70s muscle bike still exists. Surely some crazy builder would enjoy the opportunity to take a legendary drag racing motor and use it in the woods?
After some searching on the internet, sure enough it’s been done.
I think it’s safe to say the other riders in the woods would have no idea what’s about to come around the corner after hearing that classic inline four start to scream.
