    Hey guys, I recently made a chainsawed powered bike, and it really is a blast to drive. Not to mention all the funny looks you get from people haha.

    But anyways, I started out with an adult tricycle I found rotting away at a farm. My friend hooked me up with a 40cc Poulan Pro Chainsaw engine, and with the help of a 35.5:1 Gear ratio, it all came together nicely.

    Hopefully you guys enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum!
    That is an interesting looking trike. I have never seen one with a simple tube like that for the frame, and it has the strangest curved forks I have ever seen on a bicycle.

    I like your chainsaw solution, very well done!

    Edit: Is that a duct tape seat cover?

    Interesting setup...I would be kinda scared to take it to 33mph though.

    Yeah it is quite the odd bike, its made inceadably sturdy (heavy gauge tubing)
    And yes, it is a duct tape seat, basically be just being cheap lol.
    and 33km/h, not mp/h, that would be way too fast!

    I'd say the fork is turned around..
