Love it IKSD2G! Very cool looking.

Jumpa, might be able to Google the numbers under the BB to find the year, DOB.

I installed an NGK iridium spark plug. Maby I will start it tomorrow and see if there is a difference.

I recognize the wrench cut up parts used. That's really neat!

I am using V5 section belt with pulleys and may like to use an idler on the top (ruff section bump) side to push it in the opposite direction to make clearance.

I say may, as I have an alternate way of achieving a sort of multi-ratio for my pulley belt system. The only addition I may need to do with how you have it if I go with an idler, is to make two more rollers to capture the belt in the path so it is routed. It is about 1.5 ft length that I need to redirect it around an object where I had not expected in my original design.

The other way to change ratio / speed range, would have me take a cover with 8 screws and nuts off to change a 10 inch pulley with a 4.5 inch pulley.

Took it off road yesterday. Did surprisingly well. It really shows its weight though, but it did 16mph through the pasture by my house. I lost a piece of my rear rack in the process, oops. lol

It runs so well when it's cooler outside, hits 30 no problem.

My bike is an old monark ( originally a single speed ) now running a 6 speed . The bottom chainstays are just wide enough to get a 26 x 2.125 tire in .
I had bent the chainstay setting up the tensioner ( pedaling up the driveway ) when the chain rode up on top of the teeth .

new plan .. get rid of the stupid kit tensioner .

I cut out my bottom chainstays and replaced them with some cut up handle bars.
Now the chainstays are full axle width up to the pedals , and now i can run the chain direct from the motor to the sprocket without the tensioner to clear the stays .

Some people get lucky with thier frames , but my motor sits pretty low , and also it was an old single speed with narrow stays to begin with .

The new stays are only screwed in right now , just so i can use the bike untill i get them all welded up . not even gonna atempt to run a motor till the welding is done ,

Haha, that's awesome

I once secured a garden wagon to my bmx bike and hauled stuff around in it... it would have been much easier with an engine

Not a thing

GOD, I hate getting old-

I put up a storm door on the back door day before yesterday and it was the straw that broke the camel's back for a couple of very high tension days- sore ALL over and a fatigue of the ages- Autumn closin in!

finally feeling better today- but not enough to ride.
