Default Ideas

Any suggestions on how you would motorize this tandem bike? All I have is this pic, I know nothing else about it. Right now it is for sale on a local auction site.

Bike Bug on the front wheel could work too (or larger cc version if available). I think you'll want good brakes also. Two people + motor = more weight = harder to stop within manageable distance.

tested a bike-bug when they first came out years ago - hardly able to pull one much less two - I'd say 66cc or 79cc for two folks onboard

Technically I suppose removing pedals on the front set, I think it could still be a motorized bike as the rear pedals would still be there.

The folding section by the front I would weld shut and also make more gussets and put a Briggs engine there.
