Irish John's Bike Fleet

Here are some pictures of my bikes. All 70cc 2-strokes but the Schwinn will be a Honda 50cc 4-stroke as soon as I can get the kit.
The Giant Elwood is my most recent - finished it today and it has 700c wheels which make it very smooth and noticeably faster but I pedal harder on big hills. If it gets too much on the hills I'll put a 48 tooth sprocket on it but I don't think I'll need to. The carby floods when I open the throttle but I'm sure someone will help me fix that problem. The tandem has no motor because my passenger does the pedalling!

cor! I like the starfire one! that scenery is amazing, I'd love to go down under! must be fantastic having all them great bikes, and just enjoying the great outdoors with a bit of warmth. Up in England where I am the closest I've got to that is a dirt track behind my house, always raining and full of concrete. Slightly envious!

Wow, quite a collection. I have one question. I am new to this site and Im wondering how, and where to get the stickers.


Go to the main page and look for a posting by Tom about free stickers. Then follow his instructions carefully.
Fantastic job there Irish,see attention to detail really pays-off and u must be well pleased.
Now comes the 4-strokes.
The 4 stroke Schwinn

Here's my 4-stroke being built. There are lots of nasty problems that are so hard to foresee. The engines been in & out a good few times so far but the bike isn't ready for trials.
