    Hey does anyone know offhand the similarities and or differences between the BW and TW engine?



    I'm guessing the sprocket shaft isn't as long to offset the rear tire, ( the BW has a jack shaft built into the swing arm ) and the trans gearing...



    From the looks of it, they look almost identical.



    Figured I can put this out there and perhaps this can possibly expand the pool of parts we can all source from....



    Boy does this look like fun!!!



    Any one have the BW fever too?

    A BW350 came up not too long ago on the local craigslist. If I had the space for it, it would have been mine!

    Some years ago I've bought 2 BW200 on ebay. But they were stolen, before the selling was completed.



    I am really sure, that there are no differences between the TW200 and the BW200 (except the sprocket shaft).

    The BW has a compression release cable and the carb is a pull only. I will take some close up pictures of the engine this weekend.

    My cousins had a couple of them for cruising the irrigation system in the fields. They sat lower as the tires were more like a quads. How about just putting wider forks on a TW and match the rear tire for the front.

    Hey Plumb,



    You know, there is already a kit in existence for having the rear tire as the front on the TW... I know if you poke around a little bit you can find it.....
