Default Re: Just Another Shift Kit

i was telling a guy at my bike shop about this design. He is big into mopeds and he said that he has heard of people trying English 3 speed hubs on mopeds. According to these people the hubs cant take the torque coming off of the engine.

let us know how this works when you finally get to ride it, it would be really cool if the hub gear works.

If it didn't, of course, i was thinking you could cut off the crank arms, hook the jackshaft strait to your crank gear and use a centrifugal clutch to get you started...

Still i got my fingers crossed for you John!
