    Hi everyone... I'm KINGPEP and I have recently discovered "weed wacker" powered bicycles. My current ride is a Huffy mountain bike, friction drive via 11/16 socket, 26 cc homelite engine hard mounted on a swing arm. I have to push start it to get her going and so far (knock on wood) I haven't had any thing break or vibrate loose it. I'm currently working on a low-rider mountain bike with a springer front end and powered by a "weed wacker" engine.

    Welcome here kingpep! My first bike had a weed wacker engine when I was a kid. Unfortunately my engineering skills weren't the best and my drive shaft snapped the first time I went to fire it up :(
