    hey guys, guess who's jumping on the fat tire bandwagon? you got it.. me :detective:

    i'm having a quality walmart bike assembled by a certified technician


    i have an extra tanaka 40cc purefire i'd like to rig with this and i think a chain drive would be better, bcos I haven't found a friction drve kit wide enough and a chain drive would be more efficient.. what about this jackshaft kit? it uses the existing gears

    i'm thinking something like this, but a motor in place of the bag above the rear wheel

    please give me your thoughts!

    Whatever you decide do Not buy that over priced shoddy Chinese knock off
    of Sick Bike Parts USA designed kit.

    Get it from originators for less with more included and quality parts.

    An electric shifter works well.


    [​IMG] has 36 and 48V kits for ~$400. with all the parts to tie the motor into the pedals so it uses the bike gears.

    You can get a little a 'water bottle' battery for ~$300, my build sports a $1K ~1KW battery ;-}
