Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?
Cool StreetStrip. $10, score! I have an old Tecumseh snow thrower. Dunno how old and the carb is shot but is a great engine. Just replaced it and engine will some day be on a pusher. Take a look at the worm gear that drives the blades. Gonna see if I can use that on a vertical shaft, rack mount. Is an intrinsic reduction. Has to be pretty stout to function as designed. I have yet to figure out how to connect shaft to it. Need another worm/angle gear. Dunno, maybe a plate sort of deal with a driven wheel. If the wheel could move along the shaft, would give you gears. Like a ridding mower. hmm, I have an old mower waiting to be scrapped. Is under (no kidding) 5 foot of snow. Might be a spring project.
Now that I have rambled so far off topic I need a map, boy scout and a GPS to get back. Tom/2Door lives near you. You guys ever get to ride together?
