    G'Day
    I just join motoredbikes forum. I am originally from Finland but I have been 22 years in Australia therefore my English is not best possible. The Australian regulation for motorized bicycle are quite difficult because you need pedals for your bike. I try find solution to get automatic transmission to my bike. If someone know any solution it will be helpful?

    That's a cool cruiser. Most two stroke riders have a single speed or use a jackshaft/shift kit that uses the bicycle derailleur to change gears. Some four stroke motors can be mated to an automatic CVT.
    I used to work with a fellow whose grandparents were Fins. His last name was Jarpe.

    Thanks for replay. The jackshaft/shift kit is not available in Australia at the moment of course I can import it. I try browsing if I can find four stroke engine with automatic CVT. So far no luck. Some mini bikes has semi auto gear box, but it could be difficult to fit bike. However I lathe, milling machine and TIG welder. But often is cheaper readymade if it is available.


    I have still cousins in Seattle area and visit over there 80's. After that I have been just California and Arizona area for training courses.

    Most motorized bikes with a CVT are rack mounted on the back. They basically rack mount a pocket bike/pocket rocket engine and CVT on their bicycles. Check out the CVT subforum on this site and take a look at them.

    The diameter of your clutch determines which CVT fits.
