SANDY's CORDLESS DRILL E - BIKE

SANDY’s CORDLESS Drill E - Bike.

This took me to the local Pub, one mile from my house and back !
It had plenty of power and must have done 15 to 20 MPH. I used one battery each way and that included friends taking trips around the parking lot. It was a big hit and successfully accomplished its goal of generating a lot of laughs !
I was impressed as the 36 volt LITHEON FATPACK Battery and
BOSCH “ BRUTE “ drill powered my 200 lbs from the bottom to the top of Hilltop Drive , Caledon East, Ontario, Canada

That is quite a clever set up for driving the bike wheel. Good use of "Off the shelf components" from the local
hardware store!! Still want to see the information from Al Aker.

I have a vidio of the first run , that I plan to put on You Tube, just need my 15 year old niece to help as I am totally useless on computers. I purchased the bike for
$ 4.50 at the RESTORE and did the rough brazing to fabricate the hinged motor mount c/w long lever that can be hooked down keeping drivewheel in neutral, above rear wheel. The drive wheel,a 6 inch c/w tube and tire was bought at Princess Auto . Al Aker did the machine work to mount the drive wheel to the drill after I removed the chuck. This E-Bike has the two standard break levers . A 3 rd lever on the right handlebar , when squeezed, pinches a modified brake that is placed around the drill handle " pulling the triger " to start the " engine " The gearing seems to be just right. 1 st ( low gear ** was perfect for the , not to steep Hilltop Drive; and
2 nd was just right for highest speed ( 15 to 20 MPH ) on the level. Al Aker took the 90 second vidio of the first run adding a colourful dialog ! The next day ,
Oct 30, 2011 I did the run , one mile each way to the De Paulo's Pub. I did not expect this bike to run a long time, aware that the drive wheel placed too high a side load on the drills bearings. This could be helped by placing another bearing so that the drive wheel would be supported on both sides. AS it turned ot the drill was overheating at the end of the run. To me it was a success as I had bet that I could put a cordless drill on a bicycle and make it to the Pub.

Your drill will probably burn up using it like this. They just don't have the cooling capacity to be ran hard, non-stop.

I built a drill bike also..about 2 years ago. I weigh about 270 lbs..and knew that a 18 volt drill would not be strong enough so I went with a 24 volt drill, which still was not strong enough. My setup mounted the drill motor on the front of the wheel, using a simliar spring contraption like you have. From what I have read, it seems the best sized drive cylinder unit is between 1-2" round , so I took the drill motor out of the drill and just used the drill chuck as the drive contact to my front wheel. This drill also had variable speed BUT it also had a brake which I had to disable.

In the end, drill motors are not meant to propel vehicles with people on them, so it was just more of a fun experiment.

That is exactly what it was , a fun experiment. I did not expect it to use it long term, I was just curious to see how well it might work.
Perviously I had a 4 inch diameter metal drum as the drive wheel but it lacked traction and slipped, as well it seemed to be geared too low.

Nice drill motor build! Electrically this is as simple as it gets. You don't have to touch one wire except maybe when you plug in the charger.
