Hi to you motored bike people out there. I thought I was the only crazy into this stuff. Pleased to find I'm not!
Hope you don't mind me showing my contraption to you. It is a shopping bike with a suffolk punch mower engine grafted on the front. 3 speed gearboxes for pedals and engine. Auto clutch.
It made me laugh.
I'm toying with the idea of a sterling engine powered beast next.The problem is it will need a swept volumn of at least 600cc to produce 250w. Could be fun.
I normally get about on bigger machines and have yet to risk the law by riding the shopper/mower on her Majestys highway. Gonna do it when they are'nt looking.

Love the look on your face where the chain fell off. :LOL: I'm all out of Suffolk Punch engines, but I just stuck a tecumseh snow thrower engine on one. That poor thing has been a happy time, an electric, and now a snow machine. What next.

By the way, your front hub setup just gave me a few ideas.......(runs off to shop)

I like it. Wrap some wood around it and call it an apple toter. Oh, make sure you got your ear plugs in so nobody else can hear it! Heh Heh!
