    Hey, another Mongoose. That's some heavy duty customizing. What did you use for engine, drive etc?

    the engine is off of one of those chinese pocket bikes.. 49cc. the transmission on the motor uses a centrifugal clutch and its just a one speed. i dont need pedals, i can start from a stop easily. the huge sprocket on the motor is actually another mountain bike gear set thing.. i wanted to be able to mess with gear ratios easily, so i have 5 gears on the motor and 7 on the wheel.. and ya it is a brake fluid bottle lol i didnt have much else and have yet to pick up a real tank. i built this in about 4 days, so im still goin back and changing little things on it, and i would love to have a different drive system, mine is pretty sketchy.

    Why do you want a different drive system? That looks real compact. could put it anywhere.
