Like the last guy said, it is definetly way too dangerous. If you want to put it on a regular scooter, then you might as well give up right now. If you have something with a stronger structure and bigger wheels, then it's a good idea to get started. And if you have the money, the smarts, and the courage to do it, then you should go to Home Depot, or the closest car service center and ask them for an engine which will give you 40 hp. Then you attach it so that it spins the back wheel directly, if you want more power. But you have to make sure that your scooter will balance so that the back won't weigh more than the front. Also, if you go too fast, you will lose your balance. So, I would suggest installing carbon fiber or plastic wings which give you very big amounts of lift on the sides of your scooter. The can act as a platform extension as well. But they have to be very firmly attached. So if you get going fast enough, your "wings" will generate lift from both sides and balance the scooter, and yet you still can go as fast as you want (just don't forget to strap your feet to the scooter, so you won't fly off of it). As an added bonus, if you go off a ramp, then you can technically glide in the air for a few seconds. And if you do manage to take off, then I would also suggest installing wide rubber air-filled tires (obviously), or a softer but longer suspension. That way, your legs won't break when you land. I hope you will be able to make such a thing, and I will try as well. Good luck to us both!

What is the Horsepower for an 1800cc Honda gold wing engine?

There is no direct correlation between engine displacement and horsepower. One 1800cc engine may produce lots of horsepower, while another of the same size will produce more torque but not as much horsepower. It depends on the engine design and what it was made for...In general, a long stroke, slow turning engine will produce more torque but less horsepower than a fast spinning short stroke engine. A typical example would be a 1400cc sport bike, like the Suzuki Hayabusa, which turns out almost 200 horsepower, while a larger 1500cc V-twin Kawasaki Vulcan

How do I covert horsepower to mph?

There is no definite answer to this question, without knowing the weight. For example, if you put a 300 horsepower engine on the Sears tower, the building would not move at all. But if you put a 300 horsepower engine on an ant, the resulting speed would be very high. If you want your mid-size sedan to go 100 mph (e.g. Altima) you would need less horsepower than having your SUV (e.g. Escalade) do 100.
