Default B&S on a Tandem

What a great site and inspiration
Now that my daughter is in middle school I just couldn't drag her there in the car 14 miles round trip one way a day I already have a flying bicycle. A friend gave me a tandem "Daisy." Then someone else gave me another. They knew I would come up with something. First I wanted to put one on top of the other making a double-decker but now I think I will hang a 3.5 hp B&S with a abrasive wheel on the horizontal shaft on the front tire. A long time ago I had a moped that did the same thing. I will have to work out the ratio but the weight of the motor will go a long way to making it work. I think I will only need a small spring and a lever to disengage it while stopping and starting. Wish me luck
