With a belt clutch on the engine shaft down to a jack shaft and over to the drive chain, with the gears and all, that bike was the bomb. I would like to somehow make another one. Is this the place to re-learn how to do that? Is there a better way to go now? I've got 2 vintage Briggs engines to start with. Thanks

Sounds like a Cool set-up.I've got a bike and an old Briggs just gotta find the time.Kip.
