Motorized bicycle - vintage 1900s look
« on: Nov 28, 2012, 16:12:51 »

My son was riding it.

Just a little bike I made.  2.5HP motor.  26" industrial wheels with 11 gauge spokes, drum brake front & coaster rear, balloon tires, fenders, oak foot boards and oak rear rack, 1910s head light converted with a tri-LED.  Belt reduction drive.  Good up to 35mph.

About 3 months.  Bent tubing for floor board mounts, fabricated engine mount, belt tensioner, bent luggage rack tubing, made floor boards & rack slats, lay back seat post...  primer, paint, stencil tank logo, pin-striping...

I had an offer of $1000 that I should have taken over the summer.  I think I would have broken even.
