Default Re: Can I use an old lawnmower engine?

If the motor is horizontal shaft then yes you can but if its vertical like most lawn mowers it won't be worth it unless it is 2 stroke. If its 4 stroke you would have to make a friction drive on one side of the tire, and the side wall of a bike tire isn't gonna hold up to it. If its 2 stroke you can just flip it on its side and turn the carburetor around to work side ways.
