Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

In my experience... and this was a Long time ago since I've run anything with a coaster brake, is to leave the arm connected to something or it'll move if the brake is applied causing it to throw out the bearing adjustment as well as burn up the brake pawls etc... I'd say either use the coaster brake as it's meant to be there or swap out the rear rim in favor of a freewheel type... but like I said, it's been over 30 years since I've had anything with a coaster brake on it...
