Hi all; I am an avid triker. I got hooked years ago when my wife got one. I put a sears 2cycle friction drive on the front and she loved it. I tried it and found it a ball to ride that one she latterly wore out. Three years ago we bought two Trailmate Desotos, and I have been trying electric motors. I find friction is really best for dry days and the wilderness hub motor started binding up after a year, so I want to put a Honda GX35 or 50 chain drive kit on the rear axel. If anyone has done this I would like to hear from you and any pointers you might have.
livefastmotors.com has a set-up for $399. i really don't believe you could build one of these set-ups for much less. i am not related to this company what-so-ever. however,i do like the looks of there set-up.
