Thanks for sharing your experience. The way I see it, if I rescue a
Spridgite that has been long neglected, and not likely to get back on the
road without my assistance, I won't feel badly modifying mechanically to
suit my fancy. I was thinking of a Honda engine, but agree the Toyota may
be more practical, as the transmission is already fitted to the engine. I
guess the next question would be brakes. Are they adequate?
All the best,
