MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Fox bicycle motors posted by: Chuck Stringer on 5/12/2005 at 6:36:01 PM
Hi,

I'm trying to find information on the Fox bicycle motors. I picked one up on eBay recently and I'm not sure about mounting configuration. Photos would be especially helpful.

Thanks,

Chuck

I see several kits on ebay for 120 -130 bucks. Most are 80 cc. Before I spend the bucks for a kit tell me how these are good, better or worse than what I have been looking at. I'd imagine it's mostly "you get what you pay for " but how about the skinny on the cheap kits

See my posts on my motorized Stingray for some insight. My advice is 49cc.round head (more horses), or semi-cheap and a hop up kit, look for dealer support, my first engine still lies in parts, waiting on a parts shipment from January.(It ain't coming for love or money)Do lots of google searches on your engine supplier before you send money. Pay the extra for a newer kit-round head-built in alternator etc. it bites having payed for an engine and its dead before you get 200 miles on it. My Gru-Bee square head now has over 400 miles and is still going strong.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   lohmann compression ignition cycle motor posted by: akhilesh agarwal on 4/16/2005 at 6:33:26 AM
Dear Sirs,
I am a Mechanical Engineer and am writing from INDIA.

I am interested in small engines for powering
bicycles, called cyclemotors, which were in use in
Europe in post- World War II years. I am especially
interested in a German product. It was a 18 cc
displacement 2-stroke compression-ignition engine
called LOHMANN, which used paraffin/oil mixture and
used carburetion rather than fuel injection. It was
produced by a company possibly located at Bielefeld,
and was imported into the USA by Newage International,
New York and retailed by Gimbels for about GBP 25.
It is described in Dec 1953 issue of Popular Science.

I believe it is on display at some 2-wheeler museums
in Germany, Switzerland and France.

I am writing to you as this was a pathbreaking product
and an example of German inventiveness and
engineering, for which Germany is rightly famous. I
would be grateful if you can kindly let me know
something about the inventor [possibly named Hermann
Teegen], history of the company which made it and the
product itself. Is it possible to locate and buy an
old piece ?

Thanking you,
Akhilesh Agarwal

You could also try contacting the Hero Bicycle Company in India as they were going to release a cycle motor based on the Lohman compression ignition engine ,this information was in the India Times business section in 2002 , it was to be on sale in 2003. Below is an extract from the news article , hope this is of some use to you ,Dave Bartlett ,Australia.




On the anvil is a motorised bicycle costing around Rs 5, 500. The soon-to-be-launched (in the second quarter of 2003) vehicle will sport a two-stroke 25cc engine, which can go up to a maximum speed of 20 km per hour and can offer 85 km per litre (kmpl) of petrol.

Didn’t such motorised cycles failed way back in the seventies in markets like Chennai? Says Majestic Auto associate president P P Srinivasa Rao: “That was mainly due to the absence of a after-sales service network. This time we will be leveraging the group company’s — Hero Cycles — sales and service network. Now we smell success.”

The Lohmann engine is sold on the German market as a "hilfsmotor fur fahrrad" (meanig auxiliriary engine for bicycle). On a monthly basis one gets sold.

In India they are already making agriculture irrigation pomps on its concept. I don't know the brand, but I know a Duchman gave the construction papers for the pomp.

I had a look around onthe www for the irrigation pomp and you will find it at www.practicafoundation.org and then click "projects" and the click "micro diesel engine" and voilà.

Hello,
I recently photo documented 4 Whizzers (2 restored and 2 unrestored) as part of a estate that will be for sale through our company. I need to identify years, can anyone help me? I have placed urls with many photos of each bike. http://www.hotautoweb.com/whizcadb.html ,

Brian, all of these Whizzers are 1946-47 Model H models.

- The blue one is a 1948 WZ bicycle (or a B6 'converted' to WZ specs) with a 1947 H motor, 'J' embossed tank, 19mm Mikuni carb, 300 series manifold, valve cover, belt cover and twist grips (all reproductions). Good Persons 'King Comfort' seat. A (well done) 'custom' job.

The Shelby is just that: a Flying Cloud with custom, welded motor mounts, 1947 H engine and reproduction belt cover. (Was on Ebay last year?)...

- Black with red trim is a 'Post war' Schwinn B6 bicycle with a 1947 H kit.

- Black with grey tank is another B6 bicycle with H kit, H tank has 'F' model decals, locking springer, repro seat, good Carlisle WW tires...

I hope this helps, good luck on the auction.
