Did you mod the interior of the engine to pool oil toward teh front of the oil pump sump area? Curious if that angle, once the motor is running at speed, gets the oil to the pump or not. Pretty neat looking though.

Reminds me of the 50cc 4 speed JDM Honda Jazz from the late 80's

No mods to engine. Obviously, this bike isn’t being built for durability or longevity. I’m just throwing things together, trying to make it look as sketchy as possible, while still being able to actually ride it a short distance. It will be way too uncomfortable to ride more than a couple miles at a time, which is all I need. I’m building it to take to 4 or 5 car shows this summer and a few of our local bike nights…..none of which are more than 3 miles from my shop. After it makes a few appearances this summer, it will most likely get put in the showroom and never ridden much again.
 
Maybe just overfill it if you're worried...can't hurt, might help..?
True. I think the angle of the engine is also skewed by work table. The previous owner of the table put larger casters on the front, so the table has a pretty bad squat in the back. With the bike on the ground, the engine doesn’t look as bad.
