    Nexus 3, 4, 7 or old Sturmey Archer?

    My town is super flat, I just want to take off without pedaling if it's possible, and maybe a little more speed. By the way, I bought a Sturmey Archer AW 3-speed from the 80's. I had some troubles finding the right spokes so for today I will have my wheel laced finally. Thanks for the...

    Nexus 3, 4, 7 or old Sturmey Archer?

    Well, i sent the old SA's guy an email asking if he has one with a drum brake. It seems that all SA 3-speeds are undergeared at 1st, direct drive at 2nd and overdriven at 3rd. If you say that the old sturmey archer will hold up, I take your word!

    Nexus 3, 4, 7 or old Sturmey Archer?

    Sorry i don't really understand your message. If you wanna know if you can put shimano rollebrakes on anything else, i don't really know, but i doubt you can. I forgot to mention that i'll use a 48cc chinagirl, and that i cannot use a deraileur because my rear wheel is 20'' x 3'', wich doesn't...

    Nexus 3, 4, 7 or old Sturmey Archer?

    I will make something like this: http://motorbicycling.com/f3/integrated-motor-mount-jack-shaft-12284.html The SBP is really out of my reach, it costs as a new geared hub. I don't really have a problem machining and making parts, i've a big shop. So if I can make something, i can save a lot of...

    Nexus 3, 4, 7 or old Sturmey Archer?

    Hello, I'm in the proccess of making a custom motorbicycle, and I plan to use a internally geared hub. I live in Argentina, so I don't have many options. First of all, it HAS to have rollerbrakes or discmount because my rim doesn't allow me to use rimbrakes. I don't know any other brake...

    Brand new engine won't start =(

    I was about to do the same thing, but with the hammer against the guy who sold me the kits. And that was serious too. Luckly, for the guy (and myself that i didn't got in jail haha), i could fix it. I really understand how you feel. Please post what's your problem ;) Cheers.

    Brand new engine won't start =(

    I forgot to put my results. That friday i changed the exhaust and the CDI. And also i sealed the manifold with high-temp silicone sealant. It worked right away. Now the only problem is that i've to have the choke like 1/3 closed for it to work right and that causes it to run too rich (oily...

    Fresh Install Not Starting

    You can have an airleak, i'd the same problem three days ago in a brand new engine too. I've removed the manifold gasket and instead put some high-temp silicone (thoug it might not get along with gas, i'll put loctite 515 in a few days just in case), and removed the carb and put some high-temp...

    Well, don't give up just yet, you can make something like this, it isn't difficult to do: YouTube - BICICLETA CON MOTOR 95 KM/H 60 MP/H PUSHER BIKE (Look at his channel, he has many videos showing that thing) Or... You could go this way haha: YouTube - how to make a homemade motorized bicycle...

    Brand new engine won't start =(

    Well, i've tried changing the whole carburetor for a completly new one and it was exactly the same. I also tried the needle in 1st, 2nd and 4th from top, nothing, it chokes, can't idle and goes off after 5 seconds. I'm so paranoic about this.. This is a so simple engine and i can't get it to...

    Brand new engine won't start =(

    Well, as i supossed, the clutch was slipping, i adjusted the flower nut and it came to life. BUT, I had the carb needle in the lower (richer) setting so it ran like if it was choked. I changed the needle to the second slot from top and tested again. It didn't respond too well, the clutch was...

    Brand new engine won't start =(

    Hi all, I installed a kit in my girlfriend's bike, but the little $#%&$ won't fire, i ride it like 15 times arround the block trying to start it up (with the whole family on the street waiting to see it come alive) and nothing, not a single explosion. This is what i've checked: · I have...
