    Hey guys,

    I found 5 old Ryobi whipper snippers that people threw out in hard rubbish:
    1X 26cc no clutch
    1X 31cc no clutch
    3X 31cc with clutch

    I have taken them all apart to clean/fix them and so far i have 3 of them running. The other 2 need fuel line and they should work as well.

    I have 2 old bikes that i could use to make them motorized. I am going to use a chain to power the rear wheel.

    Greetings from Blakenstein; You should use the 31cc motors.When the first one gets used up, you can just throw in the next one.When you get the chain drive built,post pictures so I can see how u did that.

    I actually decided that i am going to make it friction drive not chain drive, too much work with chain drive, plus i would have to buy 3 sprockets.

    I've got a rear mount chain drive it comes a kit.I started with a 35cc ran it right through the winter, then a couple of days ago,I mount a brand new 48cc these are Bridgestone motors and the kits are sold by Island Hopper-American Drive Chain out of Florida.They have been sold out on their complete kits for over a year now,however they still have lots of motors and parts.
