Re: So how much money in your Bike?
My first motorized bicycle was free. All I had to do was properly re-assemble the carburetor.
My second one is still in progress.
$20.00 Used Atlas Industrial bicycle.
$100.00 for a used engine and a bunch of parts, incl. SBP shifter kit.
$25.00 for a used engine good for parts only, trashed cases, piston and cylinder. I might rebuild it though.
$25.00 for a brand new engine, missing carb and clutch release though.
Total so far: $170.00..................and growing exponentially.
I will have to fabricate custom front and rear engine mounts for the Atlas. The tubing is too large to fit the stock mounts.
I have crazy ideas of a hack saw, belt sander, hole saw kit and silicone adhesive.
