Schinn fast budget build

Discussion in 'Photos & Bicycle Builds' started by Schwinn-Locura, Oct 4, 2010.

  1. So I started all this about 1 year ago with just a basic kit. After blowing the first motor I decided to get a new one and see if I can go faster since I sold my old Norco DH bike for $550.

    Anyway I got about $450 into it (not including bike, found it in the ditch) but it was the cheapest speed I could get I think of. It will do 68KPH (about 42MPH) and fly up hills with eas. Mods are...

    Engine kit - $140 ebay beast
    New Engine - $70
    SBP Expansion Chamber - $100
    Chain + 36 tooth sprocket - $55
    Boost bottle - $25
    Speedo - $30
    "Speed" carb - $30
    Modified air filter - About 5 mins. work and helped alot.

    Only finished this weeked, and still figuring out how to put the fenders on. I'll post some pics anyway.

    ditch the fenders.... its for the better. could you post more on the air filter mod?
  3. Ok, I'll post what I did later. It was my last mod so that became they weak poit. I gain 3 kmh on the top end, and a bit of torque.

    Also, I don't care what the fenders look like, it just hate getting soaked of wet pavement while its not even raining.

    Wow that is a cheap build, but a good gain it came out to be.
  5. Just did a run today. Going at between 45-50 kmh I can get 2.33 l/100km (121 MPG).

    Screw a car, bikes are back in the game. Way better mileage.
  7. Where I live a bike is still not enough. Everything is too far apart.
