moondog,
All you need is a conversion kit to use the 3 piece set up. Maybe easier, but more expensive, than finding a wide 1 piece.

Thanks for the info, a one piece would be nice but can't find it yet.
Does conv. kit have reliablity (plastic)?
Will it be wide enough for hang sen 4 cycle engine clearance?
MD

Just read 16" pedal conv. by houghmade.
Looks like viable option if you can still pedal it.

The width will depend on the spindle and cranks. If your engine kit did not come with a wide spindle then I would keep searching for your 1 piece. My 4 stroke kit came with a wide spindle and all I needed was the conversion kit. There is no plastic in the conversion kit. Aluminum adapters and steel cups and bearings.

Ghost0,
Thanks for the info again
Looked like the cage was plastic not metal
What about the change to 16" arms?

I am another user of the short crank...but I just pedal from a standing start. I use it to keep my knees out of my face. I used to use the wide crank, but with my low seat (it's all about style), I needed the short crank.

Hi Houghmade, do your feet fit well on the pedals? I like the short crank concept, and I hear a rumor, of custom-made, made in USA, honest to "Saint Peter" American steel pedal extenders.

I you would like to hear the rumor, just PM me
