I got a YTM 175 as a christmas gift
Its in rough shape
The frame is broke about 2-3 inchs from the down tube

I was considering Chopping it and shortening the wheel base by a few inchs as well as changing the down tub angle and some other things

Is a YTM 175 motor a good power plant?
I am trying to decide if it will be worth it to tear the whole thing apart and try to make a nice little wheeler
Or should i just Cobb job it back together and use it as a beater?

beat it.

Why would you want to shorten the wheel base? Didnt you notice where the engine sits in this thing. Its pretty much a rear engine lol. Someone likes wheelies.
