Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?
Oh gosh Happy, I'm not hardly serious abt anything.
and I certainly don't have a grand to drop on a bicycle!!!
It does occur to me that there's most likely affluent members here, at motorbicycling.com who might enjoy a carbon fiber/string timmer racing machine.
It would probably take a bit of study, as you point out, but it could be done...
back when I was messin' with flying aircraft models, there was a guy building CL racers... he built his own engines from scratch and carbon fiber airframes... showed everyone exactly how he did it... they used a little clown head for the pilot in them things! lol
got boxes of them little engines and stuff... I should sell it off and maybe buy one a them kestrel bikes! and a tanaka 37r. then I could run it on 40% and head for the salt flats and race Auggie!
Well I tore my motorized bicycle apart today.
It's a pedal bike with a gas tank left on it, now.
Used the rag joint wheel and the 48 on the bike I got for #2.
(Not really little more than guesses what might be wrong with the slant motor, so I'll deal with it later, and the rear wheel had a busted spoke from a tensioner encounter and the rag joint was made up poorly.)
I'll have him running tomorrow, or the day after.
Then I gotta get my own running!
I'll probably finish the Giant Butte with the Red Bat engine.
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
