    Does it have to be registered as a moped since trailer has two wheels? I know motor is to big for my state would be registered as motorcycle but they changed some in 2017. Do you have plans for this and how to get them just click download button i guess , sorry i'm new to this site?

    Does it have to be registered as a moped since it has two wheels on trailer? I know it's to many cc's for moped in n.c. but we got new laws in 2017 so maybe not. And do you have plans available sorry new to this board just wondering how to get'em.

    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).

    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).

    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
