Has anyone made a 2 wheel drive bike?

I have been very curious about this lately. I think it's possible but I'm not too sure. I know it would be really hard to do though. If anyone has made one, please post some pics!

I think he means single drive attached to both wheels, not dual drives. Not sure though.

I know there's all wheel drive motorcycles but I don't know of anybody who's transferred that technology over to a motorized bicycle.

BWA was a company that had bikes.

2wd Bike Tech had plans and kits, but went out of business before I could purchase.

Jeep Rubicon Classic Adult All Wheel Drive Mountain Bike.

1991 Legacy Ovation mountain bike.

I'd like to have a flexible shaft coupled to my Staton dual drive gearbox and drive the front wheel for off-road adventures.

Just ordered a spiral bevel set from Ebay. I'll either mount the large bevel gear to the spokes with a custom rag joint or make my own front axle adapter (like a sprocket adapter). Another possibility is to get a 135mm wide fork, a rear free wheel axle and mount the large bevel gear to a right hand thread disc brake adapter.

This is how BWA, Ovation and Christini, attach(ed) the bevel gears on the front wheel:

Here's the YouTube video for 2wd Bike Tech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RpZWNrdmMk

Enjoy,

Wow this is the place to be for discovering new things. I can see some awesome builds which could be built with this technology. I really like the one which let you switch from single to two wheel drive.
