    New to the forum, I work in a lawn & garden/lock shop and thinking of trying to use up some of these ryobi's around here but not sure about friction drive, but also I'm leaning more toward a larger cc that use's sprockets/durarler.

    Welcome aboard, Mark.

    You're in just the right spot to build a weedeater type engine and friction drive. And there are folks here who are just fine with theirs.

    But I agree with you about chain drive. There's just something about it that's a bit more satisfying.

    can always sell them in the shop later on

    Welcome to the forum. I was lucky enough to spend a few nights in Nashville last week on business. Cheers

    I still can't decide what to do, been thinking of a bikeberry to get started quick and cheap ,,,but I've been thinking if I do a chainsaw engine driven off 1 of the 2 larger sprockets on my 10 speed might be fun too but I wouldn't be free pedaling though

    Chainsaws are, as a rule, pretty loud. Oops, misplaced my manners: Welcome to MBc.

    Hi Keyman,
    What part of teh state are you in? I am in west Tennessee, the closest place you ever heard of is Memphis. I considered doing weedeater motor for a long time then found this little kit I just got and went for it. Been great so far just cruising the back roads and learning to ride a bike all over again! Guess I am middle aged crazy. :)
