Got a chance to get the Dixie Flyer fired up. I'll post a YouTube video of it. Plan to take it out for a ride a little later.

Finially got around to creating a video of the entire build of the Dixie Flyer. Thanks to Board Track Racer video of his build, I was inspired to put together most of the pictures from the build into this video you can find on YouTube.

Sorry for the sound track, YouTube disable my original score so I had to swap it with a track thay had on file.

Got a chance to attend the annual Antique Motorcycle held at the Denton Farmpark in Denton NC. It was a great event with tons of interest in the Dixie Flyer. I'll start a new thread and add photos of some very neat bikes we there. Here is a YouTube video of a quick ride at the park.

Mike I just found this thread, I am taken back and how Beautiful that bike turned out. What a vision for the year 1911 it is perfect. I am a mechanic in a park shop, and a former motorcycle mechanic, so I have alway loved two wheeled machines. I had the fortune to ride a Pierce Arrow many years ago and never got over it. I have a vision for a bike to ride and enjoy the time travel, you have the machine to do it on. I have some old Walbro carbs that would look nice on that engine, we have trouble with those new fangled things, with no adjustments, keep an eye out for one I think you will like the look and the way it will run. They were found on the small 70's Kohler engines. Have fun, Dave

We are using a piece of the roller chain that is secured to the partial sprocket.
Attachment 15521

Fabricated a new pedal shaft bracket with bushings for a 3/4" shaft.
Attachment 15522

Welded the bracket in place right behind the original bottom bracket.
Attachment 15523

Added a crank arm and pedal to one end of the shaft and slipped the shaft through the bushings.

The kick starter sprocket engages the freewheel so you can rotate the pedal up to make ready to turn the engine over by "kicking" down on the pedal. The kick starter sprocket will disengage with the the freewheel after "kicking" down on the pedal.
Attachment 15528

Both the left and right crank arms are secured to the pedal shaft so you could use either pedal to kick start the engine.
Attachment 15529

We found that leaving the pedals free to rotate was actually very comfortable to position your legs and feet while riding the bike. We had planned to add a feature to lock the pedals in place, we don't feel we will need this.

Hello Mike,

I read through this build and video on Youtube.. What a awesome job..

I am stuck here studying your kick starter.. with questions on my mind.. How did you attach freewheel onto 3/4" shaft? Or what parts did you use to make it all work?

I understand partial sprocket and other.. it just attaching that freewheel is what got me..

Thank...
