Once he gets closer to putting the parts together I will get a few photos off him. He is planning to have a girder front end and use a Victa engine to run it. Very long term project with the idea of giving LSR a go.Koëstum said:Would love to see it Brodie, have him post it on DTT
Yup, runs backwards. Awesome link to the minibike info, thanks.Rider52 said:Nice little motor. They were used on DC generators and I'm pretty sure the CLC runs "backwards". I had one on a Popular Mechanics" plans minibike when I was much younger....like 52 years younger. The plans for the minibike are still around on the internet. The base was a 24-26" bicycle frame that was cut and stretched. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2018/10/26/so-did-every-single-one-of-you-build-minibikes-as-a-kid/
I had a 25 HP Evinrude on a 14' aluminum flat-bottom, it had a significantly larger stainless steel prop, and I was able to pull a skier at moderate speed; snatch them right out of the water on take-off, too.Brodie said:Very clean for a 13 year old motor. Looks like it has next to no hours on it. It is on a 12.6ft boat so it should be a bit of fun. Still need to sus out the prop with a few test runs.
