Does anyone know about the fate of the import bike engines in 2006? I got wind that they will stop importing them from China in January. Will we still be able to get parts?

They can no longer be imported and sold unless they pass stringent EPA tests. Parts will still be available for most. The Grubee models will be supported for a time through a parts depot in OK. Simpson indicates that they will be supporting them. They are cheap enough so if you are concerned, buy two the same, one to use and one for parts. Undercurrents indicate an effort to find or develop four cycle models.

I have a 48cc Grubee "Like" Chineese Engine I got on E-bay for $178.00 Shipped. The Guy I bought it from has many sets of parts. I make all my own gaskets...except head gaskets by hand. Cables are standard bike stuff, Throtle cables are avalible online. Bearings are my worry. I have not had a problem in 175 happy miles. It's a shame that "BIG BROTHER" is so worried about about little Poo-Poo motors like these. A LAWN MOWER or a WEED-EATER creates more polution than my bike. Happy riding and write down my E-mail address. E-mail contacts are the best way to skirt the Feds and find parts.
Have a great day!
Denny.

WANTED:   KS BIKE MACHINE??????????? posted by: j on 12/6/2005 at 7:14:55 PM
hey, I got this weird thing, its orange and back and reads "KS BIKE MACHINE", its a small 2cycle gas engine with a friction drive setup for bicycles along with a small fuel tank and a seprate tank for the 2cycle oil, it works by something pulling it down onto the bike's back tire, I have a bike I wanna mount it to but here's the thing: I don't have any mounts for it. making a mount for it is no problem but making the peices that pull it up and down are, would anyone possibly have any of this stuff or know where I could find it?
and does anyone know anything about this thing?
thanks, weststreetbikes@hotmail.com

Hi j,
I haven't heard from you in a while. The lowrider board is getting less busy by the minute.
What I would do is build something like a "slant parallelogram". That is, something very similar to the cable shifted parts of a deraileur.
So when you release the clutch handle (you could use an old brake lever) the return springs, and weight of the motor combine to press the drive roller against the rear tire.

   RE:WANTED:   KS BIKE MACHINE??????????? posted by j on 12/13/2005 at 7:25:41 PM
hey...
the thing is I want some kind of lever so I can pedal the bike around with the motor off the tire, then when I get tired or whatever, start the motor up, pull the lever and have it lock down onto the tire...almost like a giant C clamp kinda thing but that would obviously take a very long time compared to a lever...

   RE:RE:WANTED:   KS BIKE MACHINE??????????? posted by AviationMetalSmith on 12/13/2005 at 10:30:16 PM
I was describing something like that. But it would be more "motorcycle-like" if it had a spring and a cable and you could use it like a clutch. Squeeze the handlebar lever and the roller lifts off from the wheel. Let go and the spring pulls the roller against the wheel.
Yes, it will take time to build. Everything does.
I would get an electric motor and not bother with anything old.

   RE:WANTED:   KS BIKE MACHINE??????????? posted by j on 12/14/2005 at 7:22:15 PM
that sounds as if (unless I'm misunderstanding) I'll have to hold down the brake handle whenever I want to pedal which is not what I'm aiming for...
this is much easyer to build then alot of other stuff I've made (namely my trike....) its just this one issue :)

I've been considering making a couple electric powered things but I still like gas engines partly becuase they give me an excuse to make a tank for the frame :)

I recently bought a Bike Machine new in the box complete with all the parts and tools for $45. at a BoyScout garage sale. I mounted it to a foldable mountain bike I got as a premium from Marlboro cigarettes years ago.

The thing is a complete trip and a gas for this 59 year old guy to ride. I probably does 25 mph, starts from a dead stop without peddeling and will pull gradual hills
also witout assistance. I call it my Hardly Davis.

I have the owners manual and address of the company in Dallas, Tx. that made them. I don't know it they are still in business. I did however get a comment from an admirer that they are real popular in Oregon. I can be reached at ivoryboat@gmail.com I need a gas tank for the model I have.
