  1. Finally got it all together now. Drove it down to the lake, & buried the speedo. (40 mph) I was really suprised. Not even broken in yet, so ought to do at least 45 or so after a couple of tanks. Just a Chinese 49cc with a velocity stack, better exhaust, & a torque converter.

    I put a solo seat on for now, but have a custom bannana being upholstered. It will be ready next week.

    Dude I dig the tank! May have to try that myself. What did you use to weld into the tank to hold the speedo? If that's what you did that is. Is it licensed for street use? Just wondering its got a tag!

    Really cool! Love the tank! Is the engine the same as the ones used on most of the chinese scooters? Looks similar.

  6. Tanks

    Yes that speedo is cut away & welded into the tank. I wouldn't reccomend this type of mechanical speedo though-it works. The newer electronic ones are more accurate & less trouble to hook up. This is def old school. The engine is a Mitsubishi clone. Cheap Chinese 49cc you can buy for 100 bucks. Fits most gopeds. The Torque converter is also another fine product from China. I got it from Staton-Inc for 75.00.

    This bike is Totaly legal during daylight hours in CA. Yes that plate is real.
    I welded a battery box under the engine so lights are in the near future.

  7. Where did you find that speedo? A 40 mph mechanical speedo is what I've been looking for. The only ones I could find goes to 60.

    Sick! Unreal bike....nice work once again!
     
  9. Thanks again. Hey L.F. This is a stock Whizzer speedo I think... It came to me with some other stuff from a guy that sold for the $ to go to next project. I have a Motobecane mechanical that I took - off that is rectangular & needs some body that would apprieciate it. It goes to 40. Let me know if you want it. I'll send to a good home for the price of ship to you prob 5.00 US send me a PM.
     
  10. Bannana Seat

    Got the seat & put it on today. I also changed the crank. I had to extend the right pedal to clear the CVT.

    different strokes for different folks but I liked the solo seat better. The whole bike is fantastic though.

  13. Solo Seat

    I like the solo better too. After riding the bannana, I couldn't get it back far enough. Solos back. Anybody need a custom leather bannana seat? Live to Ride.

  19. Cvt

    I have 50 miles on the bike now. The back drum brake is a joke. I might as well just put my feet down. It is off a tandam bike so you would think it would be OK. Wrong... I will switch it to a disk. The front disk is incredible. The CVT works like a dream. You can get one online for less than 80.00 but the sprocket that comes on them is I think a #35. (too small teeth...) I took the sprocket to a machine shop & got a guy to machine all the teeth off it & mig weld a regular (#42 I believe) to the ouitside of it leaving only the center of the original in place. This is how I made the sprocket for Zena too. All the Chinese tranys come with this same little toothed thing. I never trusted the size of those baby chains that they use. I took the cover off the CVT so I could observe the belt as I was driving it. Wow that thing really works... I was told by a guy that makes & sells gearboxes that a CVT was no good on a bicycle because they slip & rob you of hp. He might be right but this bike is faster off the line & has a higher top end than my other single speed. (Zena) It goes 35 mph easily & I had the speedo past the 40 about an inch - down a not so steep hill.

    Oh by the way this bike is totally legal in CA. You hear such nightmare stories about trying to register home built or salvage vehicles here but for once THIS state did something right. They make it so easy to register, just download this form - fill it out - tell the truth now - send it to DMV with a one time 17.00 fee & they send you a license plate that never expires & a title. This is how all states should do it.
