Yesw that is sweet. Very nice workmanship. Go buy yourself a beer ,You deserve it.m You must have a well setup shop or a lot of patience or I'm guessing probably both.
Any other home tooled parts you'd care to share???
nice hub is it internal gears or brakes ? what speed did you run your drill cutting the disk hard to find a small drill press that will go below 500 rpm
is that chain and sprocket off a pocket bike is it much smoother than the heavy duty one any probs with the chain stretching?
my problem is my sheds so messy i put my patience down and five minuets later i ca'nt find it
I just used the slowest speed the the pulleys on the drill press would allow.
Use ample cutting fluid. Not sure the exact RPM.
Clamp or screw the aluminum plate to you are cutting to a piece of plywood so you can cut all the way through the plate.
Also make sure the plywood is clamped tight to the drill press table.
It is a 35 chain and sprocket available at any bearing and drive supply house.
35 chain is the size that minibikes and go karts used back in the 1960's and 70's and some of those had up to 5 H.P. motors on them so I figured it was strong enough for this project.
I am not using this on one of those chinese motor kits.
I had a 3 H.P. 2 stroke Tecumseh motor on this bike but have recently purchased a Honda GX50 4 stroke motor for it.
