Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

I found this ehow on how to use my rear wheel from a coaster brake type kids bike wheel.

I was needing two 10 inch diameter inflatable tires to use as big training wheels on the motor bike meant for trail riding, to temporarily convert for parade use as a California Sheepshead Fish.

I will have to go under 5mph and still keep balance. With a metal sketon frame and a fabric cover, it may get damage or myself hurt if it were to fall over, so training wheels as it putts along is my answer.

I have to see what washers are necessary to fill some gap left when removing some parts like the shoes to do the conversion so I have the equivalent of two front free wheels.

Attached picture has engine and gas tank removed as required when I recently welded parts on frame. Extra handle bars are temporarily in place. Trail riding it is best to not use ape hangers.
