    Any thoughts on weather this is gonna work? 10 tooth on a dax35. The 10 tooth can slide from side to side just a little so when I change gears the chains not thrown from the engine cog. No chain to the peddles of course. Those will become just foot holders. Shifting works but I was curious if this will haul me around when it's complete? I weigh 155. Gear box on the motor is 5:1. Are my efforts in vain?

    Only one way to find out, give it a try.
    Oh and is that wheel missing a spoke?

    Looks like it's missing at least one.

    Yeah, thats just a spare, it's no good for ridin'. Was just wondrin' if the gear ratio would be ok. I'm sure it aint gonna take off like a rocket, but I wasn't sure if it would take off from a stop at all. I'm horrible at math so what I did was just a guess. I still gotta put wheels, handle bars, throttle ect.. on it before it's even rideable.

    cool thought. Is never in vain. At worst a stepping stone. Looking forward to hearing how it does
