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.

haha really? omgflyingbanana? where on earth did you come up with that name

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

Hoopajoo (author)BIGHAIRYDUDE2011-07-03

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).

BIGHAIRYDUDE (author)Hoopajoo2011-07-03

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

DanteDante (author)BIGHAIRYDUDE2011-07-05

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.

BIGHAIRYDUDE (author)iceng2011-07-02

that thing is cool, if i were you i would make a solar power pusher for size

iceng (author)BIGHAIRYDUDE2011-07-02

Good point :-)
Its rarely cloudy when there is no wind !
