    I like this, your jack-shaft set up looks very good and simplified. What size are your moped wheels and what model are they off of.dance1

    Just wondering about the freewheel setup. With the engine/clutch engaged, can you stop pedaling or is the driven sprocket attached to the hub only?
    Post some closeup pictures of the rear sprocket/hub, please.

    the amf roadmaster came stock with a freewheel i removed it and slid the drive sprocket{motor) on then i screwed the freewheel back on i also reversed the dish on the drive sprocket for chain clearance . it rides like any other freewheel gas bike just no shift kit Ill take more pics tomorrow

    hope this pic helps i did bolt sprocket to the hub you can see two of the bolts i used. the stock holes were useless in this set up the freewheel also tightens against the drive sprocket and thightens it up all the more!!

    It looks ok to me. I guess you just have to focus on the motor chain when tensioning. Cool bike.
