Hi I just joined this forum looks great.
I wish I had heard about this forum sooner, whatever happend to moped2.org.
I have invented a couple of bike motor systems, one was a friction drive two cycle,
the other is a four cycle motorized trailer type concept here is a video of it.

At first I thought the kid was riding that; said to myself, "...that kid is a good rider..." but then I saw it was dad on the thing and that the thing was a full-sized 26"-wheeled cruiser.

Then I became impressed with the kid's videography talent and almost-perfect narration... :D :thumbup:

That's a clever rig. I'd like to see a close-up of the articulation of the hitch.


Merry Christmas! and Happy Holidays.

Welcome Stuart Brandt

Stuart, I thought you'd like it here.
Do you think we can get a powered trailer forum started? Who says frame mount or rack mount are the only ways to go? We know better. We have a wider choice of engine sizes, we don't even have to dedicate a particular bike to be powered, we don't stress out the bicycle components beyond their design limits, and we get the noise, exhaust, vibration, heat, gas & oil far behind us. I think it's the quickest & easiest way to motorize a bike. I built mine from bedframe material, electrical conduit and $40 worth of items from my garage sale gleanings. I bolted it together in one evening, no welding required. In my opinion, if you prefer substance over image, you have to recognize a powered trailer as the ideal way to motorize a bicycle. Any arguments?

i think "pusher" tech is a great idea, imo. y'all give me enuff content to justify a new forum & it's a done deal...meantime, how about we use "wild in the streets" ? please, please, please post a "project topic" about your infernal-contraption..let's talk about snow, surf, sand, etc too :D

dennis: we really appreciate the referral :)

stuart: welcome to the MBc :cool:

No argement here. Built an e pusher setup like that. Works well, and I can haul stuff besides. Super easy to do, and I kept the disc brakes on the bike. Just don't try to ride it on ice. :oops:

Nobody.

No you don't. You just know "different".

Now tell me, sir, where's the fun in THAT? Hahaha...

And it probably looks like it, too.

I prefer my machinery not to like like arse. I consider bicyles, motorized or not, to be somewhat of an art form... and I choose not to debase that artform with the style of engineering and materials choice (although that's certainly thrifty) that you have just described.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
