    Does that have a stock chainsaw exhaust on it? So like basically no exhaust. That would be very loud if so!

    It is quite loud haha, but it was a lot of fun to build. A lot of headaches with this bike, but a blast to ride. Luckly, where I live, the noise it makes isn't really an issue.

    I have a posting elsewhere. I am building an EKrate a sort of Orange Krate wannabe knockoff with an electric setup...all sorts of headaches so far, but I believe it is doable with my experience from past projects.

    Did you cut off the top frame tube to make space for the engine?
    Being a short wheel-based 20 incher I bet you can pop a wheelie easy. I hope you make a video showing you ride it.

    Can you post a link, or some pictures?

    They're not 20'', they're 16"!!! Haha, Its a fast little thing, but no wheelies. It's a little slower taking off, but I get much more top end this way. I did cut the top bar, and welded the mount in its place for some support. Fun bike. Heres a link of me riding it, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4MYA3sww-E

    This is one of the first test runs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCfbAivOpTc

    Nice!

    Saw the build of this bike earlier on youtube. Good job man. Your ratio may have been a little better with a smaller sprocket on the clutch though. What is your current ratio with that jackshaft?

    Agree w/Gearhead. Low gears will allow your engine to be more effective, especially @ low and midrange. That's where the bike is so much more enjoyable. 0-25mph is where a streetable MB shines. My First gear is 46.36:1. Even in Second gear (38.18:1), I have to hang on, lest the bike pushes my butt right off its back.
