WEEDWACKER plus BIKE = !!

Guess what?! I transformed my old funky bike into a motorcycle in 3 days of tinkering around! It's a total breakthrough for me cause I have always wanted motorcycle and my mom would absolutely not let my buy one. So I made one

The thing does about 20, that's rockin for me when I'm not using my pedals! I'll post pics soon!

I am PHYCHED to get this thing working totally awesome, the engine mounts were literally falling off as I went a 1/2 mile... and my tire roller burned up... few things to fix, but I know that when I build it it will WORK!!

I used a 23cc weedwacker engine mounted onto the back of my crapper bike to push the back wheel.It runs great! Yeaterday morning at 2:00 AM, I finished making the latest mounts and driveshaft, and drove it down Bellevue Way and all the way back, without pedaling!

I have this great design going on now though, totally indestructable, kind of opposite of my old mounts that bent up after 10 minutes. It involves a cargo rack and a chain, but I can't explain it unless I have pics. I'll try to get 'em!

Now it's chain + friction drive! The thing is so strong with my new design, you can kick it and it'll still work great. I need to post some pics, but I'm st school... 3 mins to the next class, see ya
