I was looking into them about a month ago. I've kind of found out that there's tons of them out there, but only a few that are actually decent. For what they are, they aren't all that much money.

I'm still trying to figure out the legality of them though. Would you have to get a VIN assigned to the bike and pull a moped tag?

Nope I have one and the SOS says just have to follow bicycle laws/rules. My Dad has 3-4 of them also, he's been riding his to work for a bit now. If you have any interest in them FM he's just over in Sand Creek and I'm sure would be more then happy to show/tell you about his setups.

I may have to go check him out.

I've spent the last hour or so checking these out. Not sure if I'd go with the chain or friction drive. I'd definitely go with the honda or subaru motor though.

those things are FUN! especially when hooked up to 21 speed cassettes! it takes a few minutes to get up to speed, but its REALLY fast. well, REALLY fast for a bicycle thats not going downhill anyways

My brother and I strapped a Chain Saw to a BMX bike once... It's uncomfortable trying to hold the trigger and steer/balance at the same time.

My friend (Espionoza700 on here) made his own with an old Homelite chainsaw of mine.





This way isn't recommended. And just for those who ask, all the gears are for gear reduction.

wtf? :sonicjay: lol and see...

people these days make their kids wear helmets, elbow, and knee pads just to go in the backyard and make sand castles.

we're raising liberal pussies. I'm gonna go trim my hair with a weed-whip.

Interesting. Which are the "good ones" you found? Link(s)?

holy scary, just add some duct tape and it would look like it came right from Red Green.
innovative idea though.
