Has anybody gave any consideration to hooking one up?
Might make take-off a breeze and easier for some to handle at the lower speeds.
One of the considerations for me is doing a "his & her" type build.
Call it a generation thing or even sexist, but the majority of guys I know have some moto experience (even if only mini-bike or mini-trail type) and the majority of the [their] women do not.
When you have 5 cables coming off the bars with 5 different functions, it can be confusing at the beginning. Pulling in the clutch, locking, operating front & rear brake, etc.
For the lesser experienced [moto] riders, this might mellow-out the experience per se.
In summary, has anybody even considered intergrating a torque converter into their mechanism?
The reason I come up with some of these ideas and concepts and post them as such, is that I am a hobbyist / enthusiast at best. That is, I have other irons in the fire with regard to time.
I post some the crazy stuff for those slightly more dedicated to the outer limits of these neat little rides. For those that have a CnC lathe or a welder or more importantly, the time to tinker with the more outlandish concepts.
Right ! Exactly ! Let's see where this one will take us !
A centrifugal clutch would be a lot easier to install, and lighter too. Plus if you mounted one from a Honda 70 or 90, you could bump start the bike but after it starts the clutch lets go until you give 'er some gas.
