S'up! Greetings all, i'm a new member and i'm from the UK! greets to all you Britts and hola to the rest of you guys :grin: i've been browsing the forum and just generally reading up on this stuff and decided to make my own! I thought it would be more fun to build from scratch rather than from a kit So i've got my trusty mountain bike with no brakes (these WILL be fixed =P) and bought a 31cc Honda Gx31 off ebay! (will arrive next week) the Gx31 has a clutch assembly but no drum, so i've bought a Mini Moto Gearbox, which has the clutch drum and is a 2.8:1 reduction also! with a sprocket on the other end! and this will bolt nicely onto the engine! so yeah i'm going for a chain drive! and working on a way to dissengage the chain to minimise friction while pedaling without the engine running, as legalities are unknown bringing me onto my next point .. has ANYONE been CAUGHT with a motorized bike??? if so whats happened?! Specifically in the UK!? yes yes yes i did do some seearching but not sure how to phrase it to get any results that are useful! anyway this looks a fun place to be! i'll post as little as i can because reading can get you anywhere! =) woop woop! Ciao for niow!
