Default Re: Drive Shaft Bike Discussion

I recently changed the rear trire on my Honda Shadow 1100. Wasn't any harder than a motorcycle with a chain. Prolly a little easier. No messy chain and masterlink or chain adjustment to deal with.

Some bikes and scooters have the axle only on one side, and you just remove lug nuts to remove the wheel.

One wouldn't have to cut bevel gears ect to make a shaft drive bike. For instance, it wouldn't be hard to adapt the gearbox from an angle grinder . They have a built in 4 to 1 reduction. Or maybe a mower deck gearbox for something more heavy duty.

Plenty stuff out there that can be adapted.
