Cruises along at around 25-30 with my fat ass on it.

Kit is from these guys, http://www.bikemotor.com/ but I picked it up already together and much cheaper.

Anybody else ever mess with one of these bike motors? I had a chain driven one before but this is the first friction drive I've had. LOL its basically a weed eater motor.

I remember you telling me that your dad plays around with those. I've been thinking about getting one myself.

He's got 2 chain driven ones that he's going to get rid of soon. He just picked up a 62 beetle for the commute back and forth to work.

So, which is your preference. Chain or Friction drive? I'd get one, but don't want to mess with a chain.

Not sure yet. The only downfall I can see so far with the friction is getting the tire wet sucks lol. I believe that they make different rollers though that give wet weather grip.

For example I rode thru the yard the other day and it was wet with dew and stopped the drive from working.
