Default Re: Jack shaft drive with smaller 4 cycle engine

A few years back, my older son and I were going to design and build some 2-wheel drive all terrain utility bikes similar but smaller then the Rokon. We even starting buying parts, but business always kept us from really working on the project. Through this idea, I have to wonder now if using a CVT transmission on my touring/camping bike would be a good or bad idea. If I did this, I could go directly to the rear wheel, bypassing the the bikes drive train entirely. This would allow me more freedom in choosing larger power options with less concern for damaging existing components.

Anyone doing, or done any bike setups using a CVT transmission?

Thanks for all the help and ideas so far.
