    Here's some pics let me know what you think or if you think I should do something different. The last 2 pics show the exhaust before and after a small mod. I still have to finish cutting down the pipe but, that's it for now.......................maybe :whistling:

    Ok, here's what it started out as. The milkcrates are to make it look like a cargo trailer :wink: considering motored bikes aren't legal here. :veryangry:

    NICE cargo trailer ;)

    What is that, a 50cc pocket bike? I LOVE how the milkcrates completely hide the little bike! I also like the ones mounted to the bicycle!!!

    How does it ride? Can you carry stuff in the crates and still keep balanced? Is it fast?

    It's 49 cc actually. I haven't loaded the trailer yet but, with the bike loaded it does fine. Top speed is 28.5 mph with just me and the bike. I do plan on doing some test loads on the trailer close to home first to see how it handles. I don't think I'll be trying for a top speed run with it loaded. I hope to cruise at 18-20 would be plenty enough for me. I do have another fuel tank that I'm going to add this small tank doesn't hold enough fuel. The new tank holds 1 gal perfect for the on the go refuel elminates the guess work.

    That is an inexpensive way to go for a push trailer... you can pick up those pocket bikes used for around $100.

    Great idea!

    My push trailer will be completed soon hopefully... I got all my parts in finally!

    To date I still have less than $20 invested in my ride that's everything from front wheel to motored trailer rear wheel. :)

    How do you start the engine? Isn't the milk crate in the way?

    Do you use the brakes on the trailer? Does it help much or do the bike brakes do most of the work?

    I cut a hole in the milk crate which gives plenty of access to the pull cord. I don't currently have brakes on the trailer but, I might hook the brake back up. Just not sure if it would do any good with the amount of weight on that tire. Might not be enough to notice.

    Very smart on all counts. I'm about to do the same but with an old "Lil Indian" minibike frame with a 4 stroke honda with centrifugal clutch.
    Stealth is good and I like your way of covering things up with the crates.

    Very ingenius!

    Is that little bike's crown strong enough for the job?

    Is it loud, or fairly quiet being a 2 stroke? I saw your first post mentioned an exhaust mod.

    how's that trailer motor bike THING run ?

    looks like it would be pretty fast

    The exhaust mod is just a turn down, it's not any louder but the mod didn't make it less quiet either. I plan on taking some more pics to show the hole I cut to access the pull cord and choke.

    much improved from the initial trailer setup.:detective:

    Good job!
  19. love the way the throttle is attached with cable ties! Maybe you could make some way of like a quick release system because i bet thats pretty hard to take off in a hurry..
    Looks neato though! very disguised :)

    Here's some pics of inside the crates and the hole I cut to access the pull cord and choke. I didn't like the way the 1 gal gas can I was going to use looked so I used a 1/2 gal one off of a push mower looks much better. I also plan on redoing the metal pipe running through the milk crates they block to much of the storage area going to bend some up to go around the outside of the crates but, that will probably wait until warmer weather.
