Introduction: Walmart Bicycle Converted to a Chopper Minibike

About: Just a normal guy trying to make it in life .Good paying job but mindless sometimes .I enjoy making things in my garage to keep my mind going .. Its fun making something new but its more fun taking somethi...
Well it started with my buddy asking me to fix his old rupp mini bike.It was to far gone to fix so i got this idea to put it in a bicycle. I had such a good time doing it i made another one for myself. The first one is a 3 1/2 briggs motor and goes 41 miles a hour . The second one i had to build from scratch has a 5 horse briggs and goes 54 miles an hour. I just cant belive the reliability . we goof around at night in the summer and tool around the back roads. please send me comments and tell me what you think .

    Well once you get all the parts you need .Really the only hard part of the whole project is making the motor mount , and cutting the frame where you need to ,to be able to weld in the mount. The only other tricky part is mounting the motor in t he center of the frame and aligning the motor sprocket to the back left jack shaft sprocket. Not to mention aligning the right jack shaft sprocket to the back tire sprocket !

    HELLO, DO YOU THINK I COULD DO THIS WITH A 20" BMX BIKE, 6.5 HP ENGINE, A CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH, AND A SPOKE MOUNT SPROCKET?

    oh, and what is the bike called you started with?

    Can you send me the instructions on how to make this? -thanks

    I wish I took more pics when I made this. It was one of my first instructables so I wasn't sure how to make a instructables yet. That's why it's not featured because it's not detailed enough.

    Thank you for all my views and comments .I am getting ready to post more pictures of this bike plus a better plan of how i did it . Thank you for viewing ..

    It was very exciting to build. Riding it is a blast. It doesnt break ,it just goes haha.
    My friend and i feel like rebels in the middle of the night riding around the back roads at all hours of the night !!

    I was wondering what sort of welder I'd need for an engine mount.. I tried a mig welder and the engine fell off whilst driving.

    They are a lot of fun to putt around late late at night .

    Very cool, I just ordered an 80cc engine for mine. Its rated @ 6-8 hp. I'm leaving the pedals (I was a trouble maker of a Kid so I have lots of ines to pay off) because thats the only way I can cruise it around legally. I have a full custom rear fender and a few other Mods. I'll post here when it's complete and I have pics.
