Fantastico! I need one to start right now. I havn't kept up much with the project but my question is the bike chain is now the drive chain for the engine. How will the bike chain stand up to that pressure?

Love this guys...great work.

I've been just jamming on my same chain for 4+ months and it's fine. But your point is well taken, all moving parts should be examined and lubed as necessary.

Cool, thats interesting. I always assumed a bicycle chain couldn't stand that pressure hence the motorcycle 415 is used. But hey lets roll em out and see what happens. This can resolve a whole bunch of issues for me with chain alignment problems on stretch cruisers or any bike for that matter.

That big chain and sprocket has always been a sore point for me. I just started walking away from HT's but now this and couple other things has me thinking twice.

Tanks....

That's pretty much what has been driving me. My engine was made in China, but it stops there......so to speak. Ask my wife to comment about all the "stuff" on my bike. :eek::cool: I call the stuff "improvements":)

Oh that stuff is definitely improvements. The gas cap gasket is a major thing in itself. Another sore point for me is all the engines leak somehwere around the carb.

3 questions please Pablo:

Have you tried sealing off the tickler/primer yet? Is that the primary source of leaks? Maybe thats the next product for the site?

Do you think the boost bottles make a major difference in performance?

and 3rd I was really impressed by a round head 50cc I bought, it was well balanced, smooth,quiet, minimal vibration etc. but less powerful. Would the transmission make up for that lack of power. I think it has to to an extent.

Oh one more, have you converted any 1 piece crank sets to 3 piece? Are the cups and bearings typically a different size? Say on a regular beach crusier like the moondog?

Thanks

Great Idea

It's official, we are now shipping. Jim (Ghost0) and Paul (Pablo) are online, come check us out:

This is a good idea and a great product if the price is right. The kit is really better than the engine and that could be a problem but I'll have to try it out myself. Pity the jackshaft couldn't fit the 4-strokes because we could use the NuVinci hub and solve all the problems we have with frame mounted 4-strokes. Good thinking and good luck.
