I think if you could address the cooling needs, the mounting and transmission of engine power to transmission that you could probably do this fairly easily.  I bet it would have a very distinctive sound as it went down the road.

I'd love to see it, it would be like the Changzuki guy only kicking it up a notch!  and unlike the bike, you could stay dry inside as you drove along in the rain.

It would be EMP proof for the SHTF folks - yet another selling point.

Go for it!

You might want to look up George Breckenridge's website.  It's called Utterpower.  The 300+ oil pressure is in fact a fact.  George also has some fitting's that he made up to adapt the stock banjo fittings to an oilpressure guage.  He also had a nice cooling system adapter to be able to use an automotive radiator.  Interesting site, lots of great info and George is also very helpful and also busy.
