    Your ride is cool! Engine is well hidden. How does it handle?

    Cheers dude it handles rather like a blamonge crossed with a jellied eel
    It only geared to make 15mph and its quite scary at that speed and can snake about a bit if your not careful

    oh man. I had this idea a while ago to hide the engine. I pull a trailer behind my bike for my 100 lb sled dog lol. He is privileged. I am putting an 80cc my mtn bike tonight. After break in I'm going to take my old dog for a ride. His hips are going on him so we can't take the 70 mile rides that we used to. I'm hoping this engine will pull us both long distance again. Being that I'm in ny I would like to hide the engine in a trailer. I have instep child trailers converted to seat alarge dog. But sound is an issue. I'm sure pup w Ill not enjoy the noise or fumes.

    Sir John,
    I am planning on building a motorized trailer that would be able to haul small loads. One thing I'm primarily interested in having is multiple gears because I live in hilly Seattle. I was looking at your photos and thought I saw several gear sizes, and was wondering if you could post some more detailed photos of the drive system. Thanks a lot, happy riding.

    That is crazy,... crazy cool.Gets the mind working, as I can see that adapted to a few different configurations.For one, looks like you could adapt it directly to your bike if you wanted the lose the trailer.
