    I was going to build something a while back with a lawnmower transaxle and a 14 horsepower briggs but the reality of how much of a pain it'd be to build something strong enough caught up to me. that thing is killer

    Thanks. just fired it up today. thing is insane. can't keep the front wheel on the ground. has a 125cc 4speed Lifan engine in it. all aluminum frame. with a chinese atv rear end. I was going to change the 32T rear sprocket to a 44T i had from my mtn bike engine kit, but good thing i didn't would have been just silly geared that low. charging GoPro will make a video and upload later today..

    I was looking at an 60s Joannou trike for a motorized beach cruiser... It has front drum brake and I assume a coaster brake. I am not sure how I would mount a motor to it as it has an odd-shaped frame.
