i got one, and it's probably the only one i'll build.
Only 2 here atm. But, Like a wise man once said; "there's one you work on, one you ride, and your next build in planning" -Dan
Is it OK if they're broke sometimes?
One cruiser with grubee 66cc
One mountain bike with BGF 66cc
I have 4:
1- China Girl in a 24" frame.
1- GEBE with Robin-Subaru EH035 on a regular 26" 10-speed.
1- BMP Friction Drive with Tanaka PF-4000 on a 24" BMX.
1- DAX Friction Drive with HFT 52cc Auger engine on a 20" BMX.
I currently have three MB's ....A daily rider...( Deep Purple )......An OP Roller for sh*ts and giggles ......And a Ridgedale Cruiser that's been built almost to the max....
This way I can hop on a bike for which I feel is right for the day ...
That's my situation. I ride my Diamondback w/2.8 hp Tanaka 47R and shift kit.
My 2006 Whizzer w/Ambassador disc brake fork is being worked on.
In the planning stage is my new Kona 29er with twin 4.25 hp GP460 engines.
Excellent, I'm really looking forward to your Kona build, you must document it for sure. Kona's are great quality and handling bikes, the 29'er is no exception. And twin 46cc CY's......that's borderline crazy ya know?
The Kona bike, rims and NuVinci hub have been at the bike shop since December. Man, it's been a long time, but I got to work on my other MB's.
I also picked up a used 29er Diamondback bare frame as a spare.
This poll is going a little different than expected....seems like the build a bike bug bites most people pretty hard in that most MB owners can't stop at just one, and that's a good thing!
Keep em coming....
I've one running bike with that zündapp engine, and three bikes who are still waiting for a motor....i have also 2 zündapp engines in the rack, but they are in very baaaaad condition. i want a HT....
4 running right now
3 others built, but removed the motors to use on other builds
just my huffy davidson right now. make the 3rd frame i put the same china girl on. do wanna build anuther. got the itch but not the dollars at the moment lol
How many motorized bikes do I own? 3 or more at all times. It just can't be helped
2 motorized bikes
1 50cc scooter Passport replica- not yet running
2 non-motored bikes
I didn't pik up what appeared to be a full cruiser outta the trash a couple of weeks ago because I was too tired and can't put anything else in my apartment.
I'm pretty sure that me having more than one MB, with our lack of garage and pitifully small shed, would be cause for much heated discussion between me and my wife.
But, ya know, she happens to own an old Schwinn fat-tire springer-fork cruiser herself. And I did promise to restore hers. I have a feeling she suspects I have designs on motorizing it for her. I'll need to dig through the site for pics on how to safely motorize a woman's bike. I wonder if I could track down an old Bike Bug? Hmmm...
Just build one like this for you and the wife......might need a bigger storage shed however!
I motorized a woman's bike. First, I electrified it and got her to 27mph.
Then I installed a Mits TLE43 engine and got her to 32mph.
Then I installed ANOTHER TLE43 engine up front and got the bike up to 39mph.
The Mitsubishi 43cc is a great little powerplant, there used to be a few nice upgrades for them back when scooters were popular. That was one motor that seemed to benefit nicely using a boost bottle, along with an HP carb, a tuned pipe and a rocket key to advance the timing.
