Robot/goped guy

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by capturedbyrobots, Jan 26, 2008.

  1. Hey there MBC,
    I love your site.
    I understand I need to introduce myself.......
    I am new to motorized bikes, but come from a very obsessive goped
    habit. I've very into making my own stuff,
    and have made my own stand up goped style scooter out of a Yamaha Jog scooter with the CVT.
    I'm really proud of it.
    Here's a shot

    I also build robots, I have a rock band entirely made up of robots
    that I made myself. They actually play all the instruments. Pneumatic powered.
    I tour all over the US and make my living with it.

    I'm going to be motorizing my bicycle soon, either with my Zenoah
    G23lh spindle driven, or I "might" use an extra G43l I have and mount a sprocket on the rear wheel, mounting the engine above the rear tire.

    Anyways, nice to be here.

    Wicked band!! [​IMG] Don't let the robots push you around too much...

    You'll fit in perfectly here!
  13. It's nice to be welcomed again , even though I've been
    here for more than 6 months and have built 1 mb already...
    But... Thanks again everyone.
    The band is on hiatus until next year, so i'm just playing with my motorized toys.

    I believe that i want to build a motorized bicycle based on your goped

    No kidding. Please PM me.
    I would like to ask you some questions about a cvt on a motorized bicycle.

    I will build one based upon your posted designs.
    Have a good day

  15. I haven't done it for a bike yet,
    as the gear ratio issue is wrong. It's easy with a 10 inch goped wheel.
    Not so easy with a 26 incher. Gotta get the gear ratio right first.
    I'm working on it now.

    Cool, you will really love the motorized bicycles. How fast does scooter go?
  17. I know, I already do. :)
    Remember, I already made one and have been a member since January.
    I posted a thread about my MB in " rack mount" long ago.

    My CVT goped runs about 40.
    My MB with a 40 cc tanaka scrubber drive runs about 35ish.

    A happy time has a 4 to 1 jackshaft built in.
    Engine rpm about 6,000.
    Then a huge reduction through the jackshaft.
    The driven sprocket is a ten tooth driving a 415 or .81 BMX chain.
    Final sprocket size is usually 44 tooth.
