Yep, with a variable belt/clutch set up, so lots of low end torque and seemingly no end to the top end. Well, of the two of us that have taken it for a spin, we've yet to discover what the top end actually is. I think 50 MPH is about as fast as either of us have gone, me maybe less. It's fun, dangerous and kinda cool. It's something different anyway. The guy I built it for has a few other motorised bikes, but all two wheel. He asked me if I could do something like this, and of course I said yes, let's. tongue

One of these when I'm feeling brave, or stupid, I'll get it out on some straight road and see what it'll do....with my leathers on. tongue

Re: Motorized bikes thread! Who's into them?

80 degrees here today, so my bike got the long ride it needed since the upgrades.  Eventually I'll stop spending money on other things and build the tank this bike needs. On a recent rainy day i sticker bombed my stock tank. Its hideous and awesome!

You guys seen this thing? Not finished yet, working on making the tank now.

Don't really know, nothing special I'm sure. Bought a kit off the internet, started building a bike around it.

Re: Motorized bikes thread! Who's into them?

Got the frame welded a couple weeks ago, got the tank almost mocked in cardboard.

This wins in all aspects.  Fast, low and probably 100 miles a tank... cool

Ive got 2 vintage mini bike chassis's waiting for 3 hp briggs... a couple years ago I chopped a mtb up and put a 3hp on it but never got it finished, so I'm really wanting to start another one.  I was wanting to go 3hp and run a welded second hoop on the rear rim to run a belt.  But now I'm probably going to go the same route you went.  Makes the most sense.

It fast, its low, but the cylinder port job ate in to the fuel efficiency quite a bit. Fine by me, i wanted performance! Its a 26" frame, with a 24" rear wheel for a couple of reasons. I wanted the seat as low as possible, and as wide of a rear tire as i could make fit. I barely squeezed a Stolen Joint 24x 2.20 tire in the back! The only mod i did to the frame was trim the seat tube a bit to get the seat lower. There is still room for the seat post clamp that  really only holds the custom brackets that i made to move the seat back probably 3 or so inches. Pm me if you want, I'll tell you my thoughts and ideas on what motor kits, bikes/frames are good candidates. most parts from my kit weren't even used, i upgraded to much to list before the bike ever made it out of my workshop for its first ride.

Thats a nice start! Im almost 3 years into the hobby and i can tell you a few things with certainty. One, dont underestimate quality braking components. Two, Monarch style forks look cool, but can be very unpredictable and scary. Three. Know the local and state laws regarding motorized bikes as good, or better that the police. Haha!

Edit- the chain that came with the kit is basically worthless. Buy a quality #41 chain from a farm and tractor supply store. Or order online.
