you will need 2 things to get the bike up and running, first is a motor mount from barry ebay #270115475365 don't buy any other as it will break and crack, trust me l know.
the other part you will need is a hub adapter, livefast sells them on ebay but l didn't see them on there, but im sure that you can call him and he will sell you one (801) 830-8465
these hub adapters will save you alot of time, with the spacing of the rear wheel and chain. im telling you this because l bought all this stuff and l know what will work and what dosen't. just trying to save you money!!!!! and headaches.
Well Im a fellow Chopper motorizer... but i already splurged and bought the engine mount and now Im broke for the sprocket adapter So i was thinking about doing this with PVC pipe for the little part that pushes it out a little and then duper thick aluminum or possibly steel for the actual peice the sprocket screws into (but with bolts)
Would this work? COuld someone gimme in depth dimmensions or close up and different angled shots?
your gonna need that adapter, the spokes on that rim are at such an angle that those rubber spacers will not work, and even if you do get it on there some how(8 rubber spacers later) is gonna rip that rim to rat crap. l wouldn't trust it.
the safest way to do it would be to get the adapter, l know you probably don't like this info but, better to be safe than sorry.
I took a regular steel bicycle 44th sprocket and drilled the center hole out just enough so it would slip over the bearing housing and the drilled hole right on the hub flange. This way you don't have to worry about hashing on your spokes.
