    Hello I am new here and jsut though I would share with you the bike that I currently have. I simply modified a stock bmc bike and added a 3 hp briggs and stratton engine to it. I used a chain drive and a go kart clutch as the drive train.
    Here is my build page for it:

    Let me know what you think of it.

    Hello and welcome.

    Good looking build. Huge drive sprocket. Will that engine spin fast enough to give you any speed? I imagine torque is no problem.

    Yes, the engine spins up to about 3000rpm and I can get to about 30MPH and it climbs hills no problem.

    Nice work integrating the engine into the bike frame....

    I had a 6.5hp push trailer and it got me way past 40+ mph and I weigh 230lbs myself.

    I am going to revisit the idea very soon!

    The pipe that holds it up for parking is the footrest. It is bet up a little more to make corners now though.
