    bike peg mounting to motor shaft (friction drive)

    How exactly do you connect a bike peg to the motor shaft? I understand the concept, I just don't see how you can connect them. I'm using a weed eater 25cc motor and I have the basic design down. I just need the roller now. Any advice would be helpful. Thx
