    fatdaddy, on your Tri-baby, how did you get the rear wheel to be both engine and pedal powered? More specifically, how does the pedal drive work/ is routed?

    A picture is worth a thousand words. The only thing ya cant see is that I took a threaded pipe, notched it out where the sprocket bolts went, and welded the rest directly to the sprocket. Then just spun on the freewheel. The second pic is how I did the pedal assembly. What ya can't see in this one is that I had to use a spring tensioner( an old derailer) on the pedal chain to compensate for the movement of the rear suspension.

    And OH YEAH, The pedals aren't really for pedaling, They came off a 12" bike and they work, but their mainly just to make it legal.

    My first motorized bicycle (kit) was dubbed 'Suicide' due to a front disc brake only. My next build (custom/non-kit) will be named '5150'.

    It will be FD. 49cc 4 stroke on a 12" Strada by VariFlex. Its gonna be INSANE.

    I'd be a lot happier with a BCAmerica Skywalker. Know where to get one?

    I found one at an old BCA building,now owned by BikeUSA,and it is most definitely not for sale.

    Even though I wasn't asking to buy it.


    I have a conspiracy theory about what happened to the BCA company. And of course the government is involved.

    That's really all I want to do. If I had seen one of these when they were being made I would have had 2! A few months ago is when I first saw one on (I think) bikeforums.com.

    I'm doing basically the same thing,but pedals in the front. And the rear wheel will drive on one side only,probably the left.

    Just waiting till payday(my sugar momma's) to buy the rest of the single speed drive system.

    I almost bought the Deep Six, but opted for the Slater because of the springer fork. If I had bought the Deep Six, I would have called it The Sinister Six.

    That sounds like a pretty good name for one.

    So what are you naming your Slater?

    Not sure yet, that's what led me to this thread, haha! It will be a Morini S6S build. I thought about Phantom's Fury, Bad Company, Popcorn's Revenge (after Popcorn Sutton (RIP), and inspired by moonshine running) and a few others. Still trying to decide. I think it will depend on the finished bike and its "attitude". I'm sure it will have quite the personality!

    I am about to start work on the "Screaming Eagle". It's going to be a military themed bike for my father-in-law who was in the 101st Airborne...

    What I learned from this thread is you don't name the bike. The bike tells you it's name. Just think about it.
