    Hi all. Here in Florida, I've built a couple of moto bikes, one with a B/S 3.5 hp vertical shaft, friction
    drive, offset to the side, a little top heavy, but that baby would go, just in idle speed. The other one
    was a Tecumseh 1.5 hp horizontal, with a skate board wheel as the friction wheel, until I slung
    a bearing. I've also built a grinder, and a built sander out of two other old bikes, I'm in the process
    of building a band saw out of parts of an exercise bike. I've seen some engine bikes on the road, but
    not up close. I here some of them have problems, like spoke damage, engine mount problems, etc
    I would like to buy one of the cheep one's, and see if I can improve on it. Well thanks to all who
    reply. Matt cvlt1

    This forum has a lot of inventors/mad scientists. We are always happy to see new ideas being put forth.
