Despite Jan's mistakes with the Subi, these seem to do well in the CH750 that you want to build....
Sitting scanning Craigslist while speaking with customers......found an interesting engine.
Looks like complete FWF off of a Fairchild 24? Nosebowl looks like a F24.

And yet another interesting bird. https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/avo/d/butlerville-wichawk-biplane/7023551109.html
12 G's? sounds like a rocketship!
Ok, STOL guys, here is your chance! Goes "Potatoe, potatoe" when running. (Would you need to wear chaps and a skid lid when flying this?) Check out the data tag. Build a minature DRACO!
And a Volksplane with engine! https://williamsport.craigslist.org/avo/d/towanda-evans-vp-1-volksplane/7019876742.html
I spit tea all over my keyboard when I saw Harley Davidson and 125 hp on the same data plate. I can't imagine a sub 100 hp engine trying to drag a 3000 pound plane around on the backside of the drag curve. The pooch pulling the Grinch's loaded sleigh came to mind.
Looks like a pretty nice Volksplane at first blush...
That thing should be hanging from the ceiling of a Crackerbarrel or put the right wheels on it to run on that "twin silver line", sort of a steam-punk flying locomotive.
Might have used a Buell engine, some of those do rather well in HP. 145 hp or so if I remember right.
And of course, I have to finish off with a joke.
How do we know that James Bond rode a Harley??
His martinis were always shaken, not stirred.
Wonder how long that STOL bird could handle the shaking of a V-Twin?
