Default Re: Other drives, trailer/ trike/ extra wheel....

" pictures of his rig, with the kart wheel did he just go direct drive from engine to wheel or does he have a transfer case?"

I'll hope to catch the guy when I have a camera handy...

What he's got is kinda like another fork, going backwards from the rear axle, to a steering neck from a bicycle front. His power unit is just like on a Go-ped powered skateboard kinda thing... a box stock mitsubishi with automatic clutch, 8mm chain to a go-kart rear wheel. He's got a long throttle cable.
That's about it!

Very simple and it's pretty quiet.
He starts it with the stock recoil starter.

My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
