MOTORIZED BICYCLES:Spryte Engine posted by: Dee on 2/11/2005 at 12:31:39 AM
Does anyone know about spryte engine! Where can you find them? It was used in the 1950's as a motor bike engine. If anyone has any information on this it would be helpful.

Does you clutch hook up if you disconnect the cable/linkage? You know, all of those things need adjustment that isn't too tough one you remove the right side cover.

O.K. Its either disengaged (pedal) or engaged (motor) there isn't an option c. I think your problem is with the clutch cable slack, take it up.

I ended up taking the clutch arm off and replacing it at a more workakable angle to the pull point of the cable since the clutch lever was difficult to opperate. (at the 2 o'clock position instead of the 3-4 o'clock.)

just installed a 'kings' 80cc engine purchased from 'onecylinder' in missouri(great customer support!); runs perfect. the clutch lever should have a lock on it to disengage the clutch when pedaling. i've seen a bike built in so. california that used a rubber strap to hold in the clutch when riding as a bike. replaced the clutch cable(cheap, cheesy, chinese) with a 'vespa' cable-- much stronger, less pliable than the 'string' provided with the kit. you'll figure it out and when you do, you'll have a blast on that thing. good luck...

FOR SALE:electronic ignition for TAS motors posted by: John Martin on 2/1/2005 at 9:44:45 PM
Get your TAS, Free Spirit, Bug, etc. 2 cycle bike motor ready for spring. Replace your points and condenser with an electronic ignition system. Quick and easy installation on the inside of the front cover so nothing shows. Kit includes the system, picture instructions and a new spark plug. I think my motors start easier and run better with them installed.
