    Junior's first Briggs bike

    Hello All, This is my first 4stoke and first non-kit build. Seems like I dove in head first on this one. That being said, Im trying to keep the build as simple as possible using whatever parts I have lying around my garage. The frame was a step-thru cruiser to which I added suspension...

    Mystery of the failed re-starts

    Hey all. I tried doing some searching, but couldnt find anyone who has had this problem. My '80cc' BoyGoFast motor has been displaying a very annoying tendency lately. Ill start it initially without issue and Ill ride it at least long enough for the motor to get hot. If I stop and shut the...

    Strange Shimano Hub

    Found a Shimano 3cc hub in an assortment of bike parts, but there are some weird features that I can't make any sense of. For starters there's a sprocket integrated into the casing and it's mounted in the center of the hub. Also, there's no place for any spokes to mount... Anybody familiar...

    raleigh brakes

    Im using a set of calipers of an old raleigh bike i found and ive run into some trouble. The bolt that runs through the front brake needs replacing, but at this point im not sure if a replacement exists. It seems to be about a M7... maybe even a M6.5 (if that exists), and the thread pattern...

    Motorized bicycle that'll run on beer

    Ive got ideas to use a heineken draught keg (the mini 5L kegs) as a gas tank. That is, after Ive emptied it of course!! Anyway, Im stumped on a good mounting technique. I think the easiest way to do it would be to make a rack and mount it above the rear wheel. I rarely ever make things easy on...

    Roadbike turned tracker

    Finally, after seemingly endless frustration, Ive finished my first build. Now, the next logical step is to start a new one, right??

    No start wonder!

    So Ive racked my brain and cannot for the life of me figure out whats keeping my engine from firing. Ive got spark, although the plug was a little oily, but I cleaned it and still no start. Ive got fuel; Ive even cranked to the degree that Ive had liquid dripping from my exhaust (ive shut off...

    Kick Start

    Hey all, Ive heard little bits about kick starts for these engines. Ive got an 80cc motor I bought from BoyGoFast on Ebay and I was hoping somebody might know where I can get a kick starter that would be compatable. Thanks for any input yall might be able to offer!

    Lows the only way to be

    Hello all, Just wanted to post a pic of my bike. It looks great, but now after all the complications that came from trying to install this kit on a 20" bike, I realize that I should have gone another, larger route. The bus in the background is another one of my motorized abominations. The...
