If I ever get a 50cc, this will be the engine I will put in it.
interested in the 60 for more power and less vibrations since you wouldn't have one cycl moving up/down. Also hope the bolt pattern to mount the motor and prop would be the same as the dle-55

The dle-60 twin would be sooooo cool in an 89 if it fits. Also probably would look cleaner with just the exhaust sticking out instead of the single head. Then everybody would think its a 100cc bird with a twin in it and because the 89" slick looks so big

Hey maybe some new York guys can tell me if this is true.

Minors 14 and 15 years old may work after school hours and during vacations, but not in factory work. They may do delivery and clerical work in any enclosed office of a factory, and in dry cleaning, tailor, shoe repair, and similar service stores

I found that on the interweb about new York just making sure before I am about to prove to someone they are just lazy.

Flying today. It's pretty breezy, enough for stationary harriers with the 48.

Also have to make sure somebody doesn't just grab it if you leave it unattended which is crazy to think leaving a spinng blade device un-attended.
eh

I'm sure all those features could be easily bypassed. Just like that darn button that kills the engine when you get off the seat of the riding mower to get the frisbee out of the yard.
