This bikes got a 3 horse Briggs, but the next one I build (its coming soon) will no doubt run something bigger, and a tranny. Thats the only info I'll give on that one. Oh yeah and think one side swing arm!
I'm gonna be running a 3hp Briggs on mine as well very small engine I think but that's all I got. The next one I wanna build will have a 6hp Honda or a 5.5 with a motorcycle gearbox if I can find one. Hardtail but front suspnesion.
Go with one big sprocket pal, the 3 Hp I have is pretty good, and it won't go up hill. mind you I'm 220lbs so that can't be helping. Measure how big a sprocket you need, I have hundreds of new bike sprockets. If you need one.
Sprockets are $35 bucks a piece here:drunk: :spank: Seems kinda much to me. I'm probably gonna go with a 6.1 gear ratio. I got a 10 tooth sprocket on the engine so I'll probably be going for a 60-70 tooth on the rear. Right now I'm working out the rear axel set-up. It's giving me some major head-aches. The rest of the bike seems no big problem but the rear axel setup is killing me.
Did you use drums brakes or disc brakes? I'm thinking of going with the old fashioned way brake: rubber pad against rubber tire. Make the pad pivot on the end and have a shaft connected to the pad and to a "jockey shifter" handle. So it looks like a jockey shift but it's the brake. I'm on a budget so unless I can find good used drum brakes of a bike or somethin' I'm stayin with this method.
What kind of sprockets do you got?
Cool:thumbup: will have to see about them sprockets Is that a satin black you painted it with flames on the tank? Did you fab the tank yourself?
Sorry bout all them questions but I'm kinda interested to know as much as possible cause I didn't find too much on the net.
