I'll be 70 soon, and found your site recently. I made diy go karts and 2 minibikes back in the 60's. But I liked the belt drive of my first mini bike, made on a 20 in inch bike frame, Power Products 2 stroke motor, and a V-plex clutch. I just found a NOS V-plex clutch and it's coming this week. I want to use a Honda GX50 engine on either a beach cruiser frame or one of the newer aluminum frames with built in gas tank. V-plex pulley is on starts out with a pulley slightly larger than 1 inch and closes V belt gap to produce about a 2 1/4 or so pulley at higher rpm. It's an A belt clutch and I was considering the Whizzer 15 inch sheave for the rear wheel. This will be on a 26 inch bike. Will this gearing be ok, with this "expandable pulley" clutch. Thanks
