Default re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

One more emergency tip. while i was riding a few days ago my homemade throttle screwed up. the whole throttle moved making it impossible to control the speed. Instead of pulling the cable inside the cover it was pulling cover and all. I had a roll of electrical tape with me so I taped the cover down and it worked fine. I could also have unhooked the cable from the throttle. Then taped down the cable cover and used the cable end to pull the throttle up and down. When I repaired the throttle mechanism, I just left the cable taped down so that I could make sure it didn't happen again.

Frankenbike rides again.
