Here is someone elses install:
YouTube - Maytag Bicycle
*He eliminated the factory coil and is using an accel cdi.
*Dont know what carburetor he is using
*He removed the gas tank, flywheel, and kick start system, but installed a homemade flywheel on the opposite end of the engine

The motor I got has some play in one of the bearings so I will probably tear it down and rebuild it.

Whistles the * Twilight Zone * theme......that video is incredible !....." this man finds himself transported back in time....riding a "Maytag Washing Machine "
