Default Re: Rugged off road mini bike build thread.

Those mini bike plans link with the fat tire. That was one of the first things I came across when trying to figure out what exactly I was going to build. That inspired this alot, fat tire and what not.

And as for the gearing. I went with 10 and 20 mph because those are the first two gears on the rokon. I am thoroughly impressed with that bike. That is why I am using basically the same engine as the rokon. The rokons also have a third gear that goes up to 35-40 mph. And the rokons also have a cvt plus three gears to shift. They use drive shafts and gears but same concept.

What Rick and I are building I would somewhat consider this bike to be a cross between the vintage fat tire plans that were just posted, and the rokon.

Just thought I would throw that out there, that's where I derived most of my inspiration. That and I have seen two other minibike builds on youtube with same engine and tires as I will be using. If I remember I will post them later.
