    Hello, have been checking out this web sit for the past couple of weeks. I didn't realize so many people were interested in motorbikes. I have a Ryobi 2 cycle stringer trimmer engine, 31cc. The clutch is damaged will have to be replaced. I am no expert in putting something like this together, but looks like it would be a fun project. Do you think this motor is worth giving it a try?

    The starter pull is on the inboard side. This will have to be removed and the engine sued as a scrubber. You drop the engine on th etire and it fires up. Welcoem to the forum from the Giant Side of Texas!

    Hello again:
    Bigkahunna I am not sure but I think using the engine as a scrubber means, dropping a drive unit directly on the tire to power the bike, right? Would you suggest I replace the damaged clutch with one built for the string trimmer? Then I would need to make a wheel to fit into the clutch in the same mannor the drive for the string trimmer did.

    Srdavp as you probably knoe we are close to several lakes, so bass pro is a big deal here, it is a good place to spend some time, lots to check out.
