    Built this thing yesterday. Took in on a few nice long cruises today!

    48cc Engine kit on a Schwinn Clairmont from Walmart!

    Thing goes about 30 mph. Uphills is real tough though. It has like no torque...

    Anyway, really excited! its fun. No license, registration, or insurance need because its under 50cc!

    Anyone else ever built or bought one of these?

    Thanks! 160 for the bike, 200 for the motor kit.

    Took about 4 hours to put it all together.

    Rode it to work this morning!! 150mpg is so much better than 16mpg haha.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I like! I need a trike like that. Can I use 2 48cc motors without license plates?

    I'm building a trike for my girl next! And I'm pretty sure you'd need a license plate with those two motors because of the vehicles total power unfortunately haha. BUT definitely do it! :cool:

    Thanks!

    And yes! To start it you pedal and drop the clutch and it gets going.
    There's an engine kill button, and when you push that its back to a regular bike.

    Cool, I'm sure at least 1 of my 13 bikes could benefit from this. Nice project!

    HAHA nice!! Good use huh?

    Thanks again for the compliments guys.

    I took a bunch of pictures of the progress, but not really in depth/how-to type pictures. I'll throw some more pics up when I get home from work later.
