    That is so nice. Just the ticket for a lady's bicycle.
    No more than a 1/2 gal tank that can be drained easily to keep the fuel fresh.

    It is on the want list. I would expect no woman to want to do 30+mph on a bicycle. No chain, wet clutch, gears running in lube oil. Shoot! Nothing to do but ride it with a clean air filter.
    I would install a support bracket on that long pull start tube, wouldn't want that to bend or break.
    I think it has lighting power at 3.5watts@6V.

    The name is Herdan...you gotta n in there JHarkins. :grin:

    The engine is wired to provide lights, the instructions are in the manual.[​IMG]
    Also a schematic for a 3 watt regualtor circuit is available at 'nscl.msu.edu/~daniel/sreg.htm'. This will allow the magneto to charge batteries and automaticaly change over to power the lights when you turn them on. It was designed for use with a dynamo hub.

    That's a cool looking motor wheel. I like it!! (& I"m NO Lady :lol: )

    At 1st read, I thought ol'pete was yanking you about a girls bike.....but after re-reading his post, I agree! I can't count the times my bikes have flung oil on my pants & shoes. Appears to be a clean set-up. (sorry Ol'Pete :wink: )

    JHarkins,
    I moved this topic in here. We want pics of your bike in the gallery.
    Can't wait to see what you build.....

    srdavo,
    Its clean and will push a 26" no faster than 20mph, from what I have read.
    Bicycle speed limits, in-town, for the EU, are 20mph.
    Plus Harden used a lady's step-through for their in-town rider.
    Plus JHarkins' wife likes/wants the rig he built, so he may be in the market for another or something with more pep. :cool:

    I too like it but at near $500 shipped for just the motor/hub assy it will take some thought.
    Moto Morini does not make sub-standard engines. Some of their M/C offerings of the past were dated but lived long.

    Morini is producing the KTM bike engines. One of their own offerings is rated at 11.3hp for a 50cc engine and another is a 65cc at 16.7hp. But that 65cc costs Just under a grand$. I'll be posting the photos of my bike in about a week, lets hope.

    You will find the discription of these engines at http://www.morinimotori.com/eng/motori01.asp They also produce the 900cc Benelli race engine and, from what I've read now own 'Moto Morini' which use to be a seperate company (family cousin). I believe all five of the engines on that page are offered by Herdan. The site page at Herdan is (not working)

    Hi Gordon,
    I think from the op's statement that the pictures are from the dealer?

    "Here is one of the photos sent to me by the folks at Herndan of the bike they use around town. I'll post the rest later when I learn how to do this better and also some of my own."

    I see that you are really ready to go with this design, so you might give them an email. Sometimes the members go along time before they get back to answer questions.
    Hope this helps.

    Papa

    You can get the whole bike for $500-00 they have them for sale on E-bay you can pick it up in Brunswick victoria ,sadly the blokes who assemble them aren't the most honest type or in my eyes mechanically inclined as i ended up with cross threads and a couple of other things there is no known manual and i am to scared to do anything to the motor as i don't want to wreck it but i wouldn't hesitate to buy another one in the future as i bought 2 and i ended up getting the dud , i am on the pension and my friend got the other one and he's a millionare plus " murphys law" i will change a few things like spokes and add gears to preserve motor they have a lot of zip but as they only have one freewheel gear you can burn the motor with unneeded revving
    Iam still trying to contact people that can help me put the multi gear thing on and that way it will be great ....
