  1. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    You may get away with welding? I've locked spider gears in differentials and welded the steel pins to the cast iron heads before. Ideally you preheat...weld...then bring temperature down again slowly to prevent cracking. Other way about it could be to grind a keyway in.

    Have you seen these guys "Detroit hood tv"' ghetto as fuck...but once you get past the gangsta bullshit it' got some mad mini bikes racing. Shows the potential of these Honda clone engines.

    Cvt is best. And belts are cheap to replace. Clutch is okay...but a disposable item. And if geared incorrectly won' last long at all. Either way will be fine though. Your project is looking pretty sweet!
  4. Too many strokes, Raizer builds a wheely hack

    2 stroke goodness...yes...yes...yes! There's gotta be something that'll fit with bit of cutting and welding. Hmmm cogs are turning in my head???
  5. That motor in a gokart would be the berries! That way you could make use of its rediculous torque. Have you seen my "somali battle wagon"? This thing is so much fun and I'm constantly amazed by where there can go. It only had a DT200 motor in mine geared real low...your motor would send it into orbit!!!!
  6. Version V1.0 chain roller shredded itself. Actually it was still functional...but well flogged out. It was quite a hard rubber...but not hard enough. The initial idea was sound, so i reused this solution, but changed materials...with a much harder composition. Ebay to the rescue again. $2.90 delivered to my door rural delivery included. Versus paying $10, plus another $10 delivery on trademe ($20 total). It's holding up really well after riding it around all morning. Success!
  7. Do it! Direct drive spindle, would be super easy to do.
  8. Sweet as. Got a couple here, all yours. Pm me and I can sort out delivery, or meet in Hamilton?
  9. I've got more of those wheels if you want them?
  10. I took it for a big ride today. It went well, but you soon find yourself at the rev limit. I have an 80 tooth (from memory) sprocket on the rear, which is awesome for gravel roads and hills...but I could easy go to a 68 tooth for road use t get more speed. Anyway, it was fun. But I did notice a vibration...on closer inspection, the tyres are falling apart. They're just sack trolley tyres, not proper goped tyres. So the question has to be asked: "what do you do with shitty tyres" ... hmmmm???
  11. Kimjon sinks to a new low...pocket bikes!

    Warning: the following video contains excess crack possession. In most US states possession of this amount of crack would be a felony offence! Now it doesn't look fast...but it is, its really, really fast!!! My goped (26cc) does 55kph...and after riding this pocket bike, the goped feels very slow.

    Looking good. For about $160 you can buy a brand new honda 6.5hp clone. Could be the best way forward if all the others are to fucked?
  13. Kimjon sinks to a new low...pocket bikes!

    Seriously, this thing is nuts! I'm that guy who mocked their very existence when they first started showing up in the 90's. Admittedly...I similarly mocked mobile phones, also saying they'd never catch on either. So key points: 1) never take financial advice from me, as I clearly can't spot tends or recognise a good thing, even if it's right in front of me. 2) if you know someone, our see a pocket bike tucked away in the corner of their garage...ask for a cheeky ride. If it's a European motor in it, it'll blow your mind!
