    No.. I don't have a problem with him bumping a thread so that those that have not seen it before can view it. I'm just wondering why he did a whole new post with a link, rather than just bumping the original thread.

    I am the one who bumped this up and your right, I can't figure out why there is a post in a post either. oh well, he does a nice job on building and I would really like to see the Roach in action. bet that bike flies down the road.

    Re: Roach. Turbo'd methanol rat bike!

    If I recall correctly,I did this when I was new to the site and didn't know how things worked. So I guess I double posted by accident. My bad!

    I am glad everyone likes it. That's an encouragement to me and my brothers. We have had it up to 55mph exact on 3 different times using 2 different vehicles and the chain length becomes a problem. Measuring in over 100" long it gets to moving pretty violently and comes off at the clutch. A tensioner is in the works for that problem. :)

    Sorry again for the reporting. I tell ya,us n00bs huh?

    Re: Roach. Turbo'd methanol rat bike!

    HOLY COW!! That rear tire!! :-0 what size is it?! Sweet lookin style you have going on there!

    Just wondering...what's a burrito?

    We use a Briggs & Stratton 5 hp block with tons of goodies on it. The black has had some work done to it as well.
    The flat top blocks look (to me) the best on these bikes. A yard cart or fun cart usually will have the Briggs oak on them. The best thing to do it to get one and build the bike around the motor. Use the same gear setup as the kart has and it'll carry good top end. Go to a smaller rear gear and it'll pick up quick.
    All depends on what your lookin for :)

    Re: Roach. Turbo'd methanol rat bike!

    thats a 16in. 130mm mounted on the stingray wheel. it's a motorcycle tire.lol. what you see is what we call a Burrito bike. go to other bikes and look there is a post on em from kenny p. that's funny, ya built some Burritos and didn't know it. luv it. i am getting out of most of building as I have no room and since I am retired we want to do some travling. I am going back to my old interest in building skin on frame aluit style kayaks and paddles. but the guy that took most of my stuff likes to play with motor bikes so we are going to redo this one and put in a 65cc yamaha engine from a scooter in it. I'll redo the frame simler to yours and no peddles on this one. should be a fun build.

    as soon as you can we are all waiting for the vid on Roach. thanks for the info of the motor.

    can't get anything to work. My tractor seat has lots of big holes in it. belonged to my wifes dad, he was a farmer in Idaho and there are still a few more seats at the house. next time we go to Twin Falls I am going to get em. I like the tractor seat alot better too, thanks.
