I'm from Rhode Island, and was looking to motorize a bike from the dump with a chainsaw..
's about it...

Trying to find a relatively simple way to do so, without welding, as I'm not old enough to have the money for equipment.

Hey there, welcome to MBc! Theres loads of info on here that is bound to be able to help you out here, I think your best bet is to make some sort of friction drive (a spindle that turns on the top of the tyre). This video here will probably be a great help to you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEykJadNyHU, its basically a guy telling you how to put a chainsaw engine to run a bike. Just for ideas...

Thanks, all.
Yes, there is parental supervision, my parents say it's probably okay, providing that there isn't some law against it here.

Also, I was thinking of simply routing the bicycle chain through the chain saw... to avoid complications with gearing and the like.
