Hi everyone, I didn't except so many responses!
I don't have any first hand photos yet but this is what I can show you for now:
The engine is a 2 two stroke and very noisy. But I am in the process designing an expansion chamber exhaust using hydroforming techniques.
The frame is a standard 20 year old mountain bike that needs a small service.
It's a shame to hear that 1HP isn't enough to do hill starts, as I'd like it to be fully self powered.
Hearing that it won't be legal is a big issue, I work in central London and there are a lot of police monitoring the roads. Is there a legal loop whole to work around this? I really want to build something with an engine/motor that I can drive to work!!!
