Default Re: Operational Engine Stand

Only making high rpm power may be manageable if I can get the clutch and gearing set up right. A narrow powerband make single speed tough either way though. I still really like the Sturmey Archer fixed 3 speed as a jackshaft that I have seen Cannonball set up on here. That could all work. The price matters of course although I really want to build one myself. That said I will probably spend more building it than buying one. Maybe the way is to start with an RB31 and try to modify it to spool as soon as possible. I want to narrow down a direction since I am buying some parts for this build next week.
