    here's my thatsdax kit installed

    If there's a better chain tensioner I'd like to know about it myself. I finally got my Dax kit installed and the tensioner wheel pulled off the side of the bearing. It seems awful flimsy and poorly designed. I would like to get a shifter kit but can't spare that much cash right now.

    chain will not clear, Ideas?

    I'm working on the picture I think I'm going borrow a camera mine doesn't seem to be working. The chain is hitting the inside of the rail (where it passes between the spokes and the small tube) not the top. The tensioner does keep it off the top of the rail. The rear triangle seems to be to...

    chain will not clear, Ideas?

    I finally got around to installing my dax engine. Everything was going great until I got around to installing the chain. When I align the chain with the gears it drags against the bottom rail of the rear wheel triangle. If I try to push it over with the tensioner it pops off the gears. I...

    Titan Recumbent Yes !!!!

    Dax, I forgot to mention I found the perfect frame for the first motor. It's a Schwinn Peloton from the mid 80's a high end racing bike and it only cost me $42 all checked for alignment and with a new headset. It will fit all the components from my old Trek but it's only 47cm so it will fit my...

    Titan Recumbent Yes !!!!

    Not sure about the backrest, Bike E has been out of buisness for a long while. I would try a call to Rob Gentry at Recumbent Bike Riders in State College, Pa the shop number is 814-234-4636. My understanding is RBR is one of the largest recumbent retail suppliers in the country and I know he...

    Macargi info

    I figured the ape hangers would be to tall anyway it looks like they were making a 20" bike fit an adult. I know apes hurt the handling of a motorcycle but I never really considered them dangerous.

    Re: Who is this guy trying to kid? I saw this bike featured on a tv show on that new enviromentalist channel. I guess if you live around Hollywierd and get the tv to tell the plastic people to buy you can charge as much as you want. Ad was funny though "revolutiomary" how is it anymore...

    Macargi info

    I figured I would need a different mount. I looked at some mounts others have used on the OCC bike it looks like the same kind of setup. The problem is I haven't found anything useful at the local stores and its hard to tell from a picture if it has enough room unless it has alot of room. I was...

    Macargi info

    I'm going to motorize a bicycle for my daughter and we've been looking for a bike that's small enough for her but big enough for an in frame 2 stroke. She likes the Macargi Jaos beach cruiser 20 we found online and it looks like it has plenty of room for a motor. I have never heard of Macrgi and...

    Titan Recumbent Yes !!!!

    cool thanks it doesn't have any suspension I hardtailed my sportster so I certainly don't need shocks on my bicycle. I might order a Titan when I can spare some cash. First I have to get a bicycle to fit the motor you already sent. Every bike here is either to small for the motor or to big for...

    Titan Recumbent Yes !!!!

    Dax you took a good look at the Ebike does it look like a Titan motor would fit easily or does it look like a major job? I just bought a 2 stroke for my daughters bike now I'm thinking I might need to dust off the Ebike in the back of the shed and order up a motor so I can ride along. Can't let...

    need help picking the right bike

    I did read on a post something about fitting the old stingray frames but I haven't found one local. In pictures on the internet the frame looked awful small. If I could find one it sounds like it would be perfect. Anyone know where they sell that style bike for a reasonable price?

    need help picking the right bike

    I bought a center mount engine kit from dax for my daughters birthday but her bike frame is a little to small so now I need a new bike. I went bicycle shopping and like the look of the beach cruisers but with those 26" wheels it was to tall for me much less my kid (short family) Anyone know of...

    New member needs help w/ 48cc 4-stroke (chinese)

    I don't know much but that looks like a copy of the honda xr 50 engine. I've got a couple lying around. The red switch is an engine kill switch. The government requires a kill switch in addition to the key switch on bikes. I could look to see if I have an extra carb that matches yours. If I do...
