    Answering questions on my intro got me to thinking and .... well.... now I've gotta ask! Have any of you guys ever used a chainsaw engine to power one of your bikes?
    I know it would definitely NOT be a bolt in operation, but it should be possible.
    It would probably have to be jackshafted somehow. What do you guys think?
    Thanks,
    Chainsaw

    I have never seen it done but I don't see why not. My guess would be to go the route described in this BRNK article rif1 . So when do ya wanna build a bike?(c)...Kelly

    Could look for a decent frame at the Ann Arbor show. The next time you're out this way, you can go thru my stuff and let me know what would be good and sturdy enough for a motorbike. I've got a few things that I've had hiding. C.B. Bobby keeps an eye on things for me and he aint talking!

    And I've still got that moped/scooter stuff to do up the MotoPixie.
