You can double your chance of winning by capitalizing your title :). It lets people know that you are professional. People who don't capitalize look like little kids.

My extremely immature friend noted that a banana looks like a male's genitals.

where did you buy the throttle twist from the one on my motorized bike sticks on full sometimes its scary because that hing is fast so i have to twist it in the opposite direction to make it let go and now it broke because the cheap plastic crap snapped that hold the throttle cable thanks :P

Very cool! I'd love to see a video of how this does once it's opened all the way up. I've been considering fabricating a reverse trike (two front wheels) and mounting a trash-picked lawnmower engine to the front as a pull motor. I've read it is a far more efficient use of horsepower to pull a load rather than to push one (which is probably why most cars today are front wheel drive).

that has got to be a very hard engineering feat to design that without spending alot

The plan I have devised in SketchUp calls for 2 similar bikes, some angle iron (usually available for free in the form of old, used bed rails), some bolts & nuts and a goodly amount of welding. As for the engine, I might follow your lead with a horizontal shaft motor instead of using the vertical shaft one I trash picked (I could chain link it to the front axle instead of direct gearing it as I was originally planning with the vertical shaft engine). The most difficult part is to engineer the rear-wheel steering (makes for some VERY tight turns).

your doing rear wheel steering? well thats different i would like to see it in action when you finish

I would love to see what you do with that, too!
I have a similar project in mind... have a 4.5HP edger motor that I plan to use.

hey i finished it all the way today and when i gunned it you can feel it 0-30 in less than two seconds, you have to lean forward when you hit the gas otherwise you'll do a wheelie

Nice Real Work.
I am working on a pusher for this when there is no wind.
