Default Project: Too Sick To quit

Brett had an idea and we made a new shop vehicle. It was driven into the neighbors house on it's maiden voyage.

Specs:

-B&S lawnmower engine unknown size (Super sick custom carb work and uber sick cherry picker handle exhaust drilled for optimal flow, suicide throttle)
-Bike frame from the barn (Cobwebbs, shitty paint, loose forks, no good bearings left)
-Custom foam seat cushion

Here are some sick shots

Am I seeing this correctly? Does that short splined output shaft spin the back tire?

Thats what I was thinking too! I had an old Team Goose was a 1979 polished frame with blue skyway wheels. Def a sick bike now with an engine.

I'd go for the upgrade of a gel set.

Ha thanks guys.

No idea what kind of bike it is. It has a pedal brake though. So I doubt its anything too special.

We won't be jumping it. That just has bad news bears written all over it.

Yep, we put some grooves into the shaft so it digs down into that meaty looking tire. We can take some shims out also and suck it down into it more.

Aaron, I'll tell Brett to get to work!

And no gel seat. I think that would be great because it hurts your ass for a few days after riding it, but that would be too comfortable. The akwardness of the whole thing is what I like about it hah

Also, I don't know if anyone noticed, but the first picture the motor is on the wrong side. We had to spin it around to make it drive the correct way. But the mount is on the other side still, so reverse is now an option!
