There Is Such Thing as a Hayabusa-Powered Lawn Mower, and It’s for Sale

If we have learned anything from Jurassic Park, it's that just because you can do something, doesn't necessarily mean that you should do that thing. If you need an example that's not dinosaur-related, look no further than this Hayabusa-powered lawnmower project available on Facebook Marketplace.

Here's the description copied directly from the listing:

I got a 2003 Hayabusa 1300cc street bike motor sitting on a craftsman lawnmower frame and body. I have a live rear axle all built and installed with disk brake and sprocket for the chain. Front end is not done yet but have parts for it. Front end has tie rods and disk brakes. Motor is securely mounted just need to be finished up with the exhaust install, air filters, wiring, and shifter. Set up to run dirt bike handle bars with a thumb throttle and hand brake for the front brakes and clutch. Back brakes are set up with a foot brake. Wheel and tires are racing go cart wheels with snowmobile trailer tires that are brand new. Has a nice aluminum gas tank that need to be mounted (1.5 gallons if I remember right). I have LOTS of extra parts that go with it like a tuner for the motor that can hook up to your computer. I have well over $6000 into it and countless hours into fabrication as well, looking to get $3500 but make me an offer.

Trades are welcome, no junk! Interested in boats, jet skis, dirt bikes, atvs, side by sides, cummins engines, Dodge, chevy, v8 engines, old cars and trucks.

Send me a message with what you got if your interested! If you see the ad it is still available.

So if you are looking for the fastest way to mow your lawn, or upset that you missed out on that snowmobile converted to land use, this Hayabusa-powered lawnmower can be yours for $3500.

All I see is a Hayabusa engine on a fancy engine stand. Getting power from that engine to the rear axle will take a chain-gang Nash driveline underneath.

that is a SMALL rear sprocket, this will be a first gear only ride. 

and even first gear will probably go to triple digits.

I don't think so, because I'm thinking the tiny wheels would compensate for that pretty well

Fair point. Assuming go cart tire diameter of 10 inches and sprocket diameter of 5, I'm seeing about 60mph in 1st and 100 in 3rd.

Hook that up to a 60 inch Swisher Mower, and I could get my yard duties done, and have a blast too......lol
