Default Re: Integrated motor mount and jack shaft

Actually it took a while before the cobwebs cleared, then it dawned on me(freewheel cluster)!
I (think) that if the hub & cluster threads were properly cleaned and you used permenant lock-tight it woul take the load of starting.

However The derailure will not allow bump starting. That is why I said it can be started with the pedal (in an emergency) but it is not easy.

I did modify the pull start to make it more reliable(posted elsewhere). I also carried a spare pull start in my road kit(just in case).

I rode that bike for a few years and it was great! (climb ANY hill in low and go way to fast in high). You have to get used to down shifting when comming to a light.

Well have fun!
