Villiers Velo Racer
Posted 26 November 2011 - 10:16 PM
It's gonna be boardtrack style (again ) but based on bmx's/20" wheels with a Villiers from an Atco reel mower
97cc two smoke
Frame design, needed to work out the angles and if everything will fit. I want to use the Atco tank in between the rails but need to accomodate the filler and the tap underneath, it'll be tight but hopefully will fit.
Noice tyres to go on it
Plans for drive train is to run a belt from the crank to a jackshaft, the clutch will be a lever tensioning this belt, then another belt from the jackshaft to a second 20" rim mounted to the rear wheel. Hoping for a reduction of around 11:1 which these motors seem to prefer.
Need to go buy some steel now

Frame in its crude jig
Tank and crossbar, I left out the second crossbar as the plug and fuel tap were gonna be too close and I couldn't be fucked trying to make something fit
Welded and built up, need to find some smaller bars and get drive train sorted

I especially like the lack of brakes.
Please keep it this way.

For brakes I'll probably use the existing coaster brake, here's an mspaint diagram
but that may not work depending on how the rear wheel is driven, alternate solution is to use the above idea but adapt it and use a coaster brake on the front wheel and have the chain running to a handle bar lever
All good Manu, we need more poo-strokes stinking up the track

this could be of interest to you
hard to see, but its a rear coaster brake on the front of a bike, small bit of chain wrapped around the sproket and attacted tight to the frame, on the other end attacted to a brake cable and on to a lever.
