Default Re: Friction drive wanted...

The ebay kits start at about 160 and go to about 200... I bought a used kit on ebay for 60 deliver. I was something called a bumble bee and I had to change the design a little for my use but nothing major and it works fine. I would keep an eye out there for some of the old kits that still run. Bike bug and some of those things are out there and still run they tell me.

Electric drive you can build with a scooter rear end and scrap metal from around the shop.

the secret to building your own kit is the secure motor mount all the rest is relatively easy. unless you want a fancy one that is.
My posts have entertainment value only. A bike ain't yours till it has your blood on it. Then it owns you.
