The vehicle in question is a 2006 Chinese dirtbike with a 200cc Lifan engine. (Single cyl, air-cooled, OHV.)
I got this vehicle as payment for moving a piano. Sight unseen; had been lying in a field for 3 PA winters and partially grown in.
Surprisingly, little in the way of structural rust, seems rebuildable. The engine, OTOH, is–at least–stuck.
Right now, the engine is still on the frame. I drained the old oil, overfilled the crankcase with oil, and filled the cylinder with kerosene until it came out the plug hole.
Any advice on how to proceed? I don’t want to spend beaucoup bucks on a Chinese bike, but I do have plans for this to be a “father and stepson” project this winter…I suppose I could just chicken out and procure a used Honda engine off of a XL200 at the motorcycle salvage shop.
