Default Re: The Pocket Bike Engine and Your Opinion...

Great. I liked the sound of the pocketbike that I fixed. It looked a little "cheesy" but started ok and seemed to have enough guts for a bicycle motor, esp something I am putting on a 700c "cyclocross" bike. 40 is plenty fast!

I want to keep the total price (dax box and motor and tank) to $300, $400 tops!!! I like the happytime ok, but it doesn't work that great as a regular bicycle. I think with a dax and small engine, I will be able to use the regular gears for some scenic paths and no-engine paths, without too much extra work.
