Default Re: I completed my first motobike frame!

I am happy to say that i have test ridden my prototype bike and can now honestly say...Its the real deal (even though there are a few minor issues to resolve).

I have not wanted to go into detail about the workings of it until I "proofed my concept". Here is some (not all) of the key design components...

*9.5:1 Primary transmission
*2:1 Secondary drive (thus sprocket smaller than rear brake disc)
*Hydraulic clutch
*Modification of Honda GXH 50 so that it would fit between crank arms that have a tread (Q Factor for you bike dweebs) that is only 20mm wider than a normal Mt. bike!
