    Been tinkering again, took off the Staton and installed a CVT with left hand pedal drive. The R460 accelerates like a car from a standing start and eats hills alive. I haven't wound the engine out yet, just around 6800 but that gets me about 35 MPH. A little more shake down and I'll give her a 11,000 RPM run.

    Very nice Kerf.
    Can you tell how you did the left hand pedal drive?
    I have been thinking of running the engine into the derailer on the normal side but how do you get the rear hub to take a freewheel on the left side?

    Remember, I had a Staton chain drive on the bike first. Staton's rear hub takes a normal right hand gear set freewheel on the right and is threaded with left hand threads on the left side for a ACS, 16 tooth left hand freewheel. All I had to do was switch my chain ring to the left side and build an idler for chain slack.

    That thing looks like the "Robotcop" of motorized bikes! Congrats on the nice build.
