How hard would it be to put a 1000cc motorcycle engine in a bug?

bug is still too big for a bike motor, the best bike/car combo is a hyabusa in a old mini cooper!

IF you want a bike engine with more wheels and reverse go for this.

Ive seen a Honda CRX engine in a bug. They use a drive shaft to attach it to the transaxle from the motor cycle transaxle. Worked good. They used the motor cycle trans to shift and the transaxle for reverse.

Thaer's some fairly recent pics in the abortions thread of a Moto Guzzi to VW transaxle adapter used on a 3 wheeled race car. Without a cooling tin on it though I'm sure it would get cooked on a VW.

Would something like this have real world benefits (such as increased fuel efficiency, etc), or is this a "for the hell of it" type of thing?

That is not a VW engine in a bike. That is a R60 BMW from the late 60's to early 70's. The valve covers each side do look like ACVW, but it's not.

Yes it is a VW motor.. BMW did produce 4 cylinder motor cycle engines but they were inline and watercooled.

That makes my eyes hurt.

As both a VW and BMW motorcycle aficionado, I would like that to go away.
