Scooter/bike hybrid motorized bicycle

  1. This is my Scooter/bike hybrid motorized bicycle.

    She's running great, I did a few mods to get it running better, including a
    1.25 steel drive roller I made, and a taller throttle, because the old lower one
    got in the way when I braked.
    As well, the 2 turnbuckles are great to really fine tune the pressure on the tire.

    Forgive the sloppy camera work,
    as it's hard to hold the camera while adjusting the throttle.
    I need to get a helmet cam mount.

    The 40cc motor I modded makes it have a good amount of low end
    even with a 1.25 spindle. 1.25 is a good size for SF's hills.
    I can even accelerate up the hills! Hooray!
    I could go to a bigger spindle, but the low would be worse,
    and living in SF, I'll take the lower gearing....

    Good work CBR. It looks like you can climb the hills and move pretty fast. Cool.
