I'd also considered the go kart transmission for my sidecar project & it's a good option for that purpose. What engine are you considering to power the bike?It's
A gokart transmission. I wanted something close to how those '16 bikes looked. Plus it'll come in handy when i add a side car in the future.
The engine will hopefully be something special. Curt and I have been discussing A design for a v twin converted from an air compressor pump. I'll be testing it out in the coming months.I'd also considered the go kart transmission for my sidecar project & it's a good option for that purpose.

Thanks for the support! I saw someone else make a similarly described design. Strangely enough, he was also very hesitant about his design. Something to do with a patent I believe. If and when i get a finalized model working, I'll be sure to release my schematics on the forums. It would really open up more opportunities for builders on here.V compressor motor conversions to fuel has been done, so it can be so again. The one I've seen was built as a 2 cycle & was pretty sweet though it was not mounted or intended for use on a bicycle, but rather just a display for trade shows and it ran & had an interesting exhaust note both on idle and under load. It started using a V pulley and 110 v.electric motor. The builder was rather cagey when it came to details of design, but my recollection was that it appeared to be a reed valve/case inducted design (single carb) I don't recall seeing a manufacturer's marque. I think both exhaust ports were on the curb side (right) but that may not have been the case, as this was several decades ago and I've slept since!
Best of luck sounds a project that will involve some time and a bit of ingenuity...coupled to much determination.
