Default Help me build the best motor bicycle

Lets set aside money as a non factor. What would be the best bike motor I could buy? Also what would be the best modifacations I could make.

Background- Helicopter Mechanic

Bike Goal- Looking cool over speed. 150 MPG

Extras- Is there anything like saddle bags for bikes? I dont want the basket on the handle bars.

All input will be welcomed!

There are so many options out there. I suggest taking your time to decide what look you want. I am partial to 2 cycles because I like the looks (miniature engine). Not too fond of 4 strokes (mainly looks), as a reliable motor I'm sure there are pros and cons to each. Style of bikes is unlimited... if budget is no concern (you can buy billet wheels for $1200.) I'd go as radical as I could. Make sure that the bike you choose has some kind of suspension, either quality forks or a good seat, or both. I think it boils down to what "You" like. Old school Board Racers or radical stretches. Check out some of these bikes....http://www.firebikes.com/gallery.htm

I looked over http://www.firebikes.com/gallery.htm
Those bikes are indeed awesome. I have been lurking out of curosity but seeing just how cool they are has made me become complety interested. It kinda of reminded me of yesteryear when as kids we would take old bike frames a saw the front forks off and then bang them onto our new bikes and make a chopper. Of course that rag tag quality was noting as spectacular as the photos Red provided. I was amazed to see such spectacular bikes.

I suppose its time to save a few bucks up and get started. I have to confess, though, that reading these small motors can get up to 200 miles per gallon is a clincher. What a perfect way to help the enviroment and save money as well.

Real nice site and it looks like a lot of work has gone into it. It seems that you have me "hooked" now and I hope to get a lot more information. Thanks this is truly going to be tons of fun..

Default Best Bike possible

Hi, I've not heard it here, so I'll be the first. Beyond a shadow of a doubt in this country the best bicycle engine is the Whizzer.

Qualified as a Moped in many states, 138cc, alternator on board which is capable of full-time running a 25 watt headlite, 6 watt taillite, and 21 watt brakelite! All in 12v no fooling around looking for 6 volt stuff.

No need to buy 250.00 nuvinci rear hub, no jackshafting, no extra chains, and cvt or reduction boxes.

30 mph right out of the box, speed equiptment is availble, 40 mph is easy, and even more is availble.

One might think, what more would you want from a Motor Bicycle?

It is quiet (dot, epa and CARB approved) but can easily be made louder if you wish NO PEDALLING needed, tho you can pedal should you wish.

"Ride one, and you'll buy one"

Mike

Default Best Bike availble

Hi, and thanks for the nice comments! When I posted my red Whizzer I neglected to tell you-all that I did install a couple options on that basicly stock Red Whizzer.

I have added the rear Carrier (about 60.00), the right hand mirror (about 25.00), the chrome fender tips (out of production@67.00), Saddle bags (leather I stock them, about 75.00) I switched out the Whitewalls for Blackwalls.

I have also installed the Setback seatpost (about 25.00), and the Whizzer license plate frame (about 20.00). I also made a performance muffler insert.

There are other options, these are what I have chosen, and it rides very well.

I'm going to upload pics of my Model 09, which I believe to be an example of the finest Motor Bicycle available in this country.

Mike

Default Simpson Model 09, Model 10

Hi, well now I'm ready to tell, and show what I believe to be the finest Motor Bicycle available to build.

I began building the Model 08 series in '06, sold the 10 of those, built this 09, but was unsatisfied with it.

I had the model 08 chopped to become the Model 10, sent it off as running prototype to be reverse engineered, and built anew. BUT I still had the unacceptable Model 09 at my place.

I chopped the drop-outs out of the 09, made new ones on my little table saw, welded them in myself, and reworked the prototype. I sent her off to powder, with my new Exposed OHV engine.

I now have Model 10's for sale, tho I've not finished my own yet, so here is the Model 09 Prototype, my personal bike. Yet unfinished, but close, I will post more when I get pics taken of the continuing improvements.


Mike (well I'm trying, I'll check the photo instructions again)
