A place for discussing motorized bicycles.
Here she is all finished. Please read on if you want to read the process.
Started building this awhile ago. I don't really have much of a plan yet, but its starting to come together.
Started with a brand new schwinn on sale from target.
Grinder and welder. About to make the first cut. The fork is a girvin from a proflex mtb. The elastomer spring was shat so I just reworked it a bit.
First cuts have been made.
My buddy (I'll call him Mr. French) is also working on his own briggs bike.
Mr. French's bikes is coming along nicely.

BUILDS IN PROGRESS
Rad Rot - RRBBO #8 entry
I did have an initial plan but I have since deviated a bunch. Here is one of the first drawings I did of the bike. The current build will have a different drive-line since I wont be putting pedals or a crank on. Instead sealed bearings will be installed in the bottom bracket. This is where the jack shaft will then go to drive the rear wheel from the right side.
glad to see that.
with pedals, it could have been tragic.
watching this build.
how many h.p. ?
LOL! Ya gotta keep it legal!
a non pedal power..
trew that "law" out of court.
gotta catch first.DIG-IT.
Got the motor mounts welded on to my bike and the V brake bosses welded to Mr. French's bike. Not really able to do anything else until the parts come in for the jackshaft.
Sweet! Lookin pretty good!
Finally found some time to work on the bike a little more. I got the engine mounts completely mounted now. Also got the jackshaft and sprockets installed. All I have to do now is decide on how I want to do the tank. Not sure if i want just add some small cylinder for a tank and leave the frame as is or add a cross bar and make a more traditional tank. What do you all think?
Cross bar...yes or no?
Decided to add the crossbar. Ended up getting the rear sprocket done too. Lastly decided on a paint scheme, brown primer frame, white seat/grips, polished aluminum motor/forks.
How to make a coaster brake hub into a fixie...weld.
