Pretty cool build you have there.

I can't be sure, but you might be our first member from Russia. So congratulations.

We'll see you around.

It has to have reduction. If you look at the direction the recoil starter pulls the engine it would run in reverse with just a clutch. The wheel sprocket would be too small for direct gearing as well. Neat stuff hammer, I've never seen an engine mounted that way, genius!
It does look much smaller than I would like though. I like being able to fully extend my legs to pedal along.

Good looking bike. It has a seat like a early Schwinn Sting Ray from the 60's. I see a lot of those gear boxes on Ebay. Hammer does it pull from a stop on its own? Looks like you are having fun. Dave

Pics of mounted sprocket will be later. Wide pocket quad chain works fine and quite!
