MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   found an IPB posted by: Larry Brink on 4/21/2003 at 8:03:25 PM
Bike Bug owners far and wide...
In my search to find a drive wheel I found this free site with a complete breakdown for two different Bike Bug designs. The listings are at the bottom of the page under bike engines. Hope this helps

http://www.tanaka-usa.com/index.php?b=dpl

P.S. Anybody have a drive roller or a kill switch they'd be willing to part with?

Larry:

I bought two kill switches from Tanaka a year ago. Pretty sure they have more cause it the same switch they put on their outboard motor and the Sears gamefisher outboard.

Drive Wheel - I can help you with. Drive Hub - Gerald Rosen's idea about a piece of tube stock with a washer welded on the end and a key area cut with a file should work fine. As best I know Tanaka has been sold out of drive hubs for ayear or better.

Have you heard from Gerald. I emailed him your address and request for his results on a hub?

Drive Wheel Installation on Drive Hub

I boil the wheel in water. It makes the hole in the wheel expand and the wheel more pilable (won't crack as easily). Remove the wheel with channel locks.

Place the wheel and the drive hub in a vise and press the wheel onto the hub or use a board and a hammer to pound the wheel onto the hub.

You can put the flat side of the wheel on the inside or outside of the motor - either way works fine - just lettering looks better on outside - like tire lettering.

Anyway hope that helps.

Would enjoy getting a picture of your rig.

Hope we have the "Wind In Your Face" soon.

BITW

AGE / VALUE:   Getting Started posted by: Shannon Reynolds on 4/18/2003 at 6:28:52 AM
I have been thinking about motorizing a bike for some time now. One of the things that I have been wondering about is proper engine size. I read somewhere that standard bike parts like deraileurs and such cannot handle more than 1.5 hp. What is the minimum size engine a person could use on a standard bike, say a 24 or 26 inch, 27 speed, where they would never have to pedal unless they wanted to? (I am thinking in terms of hills and such.)
Engine placement is another concern. Inside the frame, the risk of burns and simple heat discomfort would seem to be a problem. Is positioning the engine over the rear wheel a better choice or could the wieght possibly be a hinderance to balance since it would be higher on the center of gravity?
I realise that these are probably dumb questions but I am new to the idea of motorizing a bike and as a newbie I'd like to learn what I can. Is there any sites that focus exclusively on motorizing bikes?

  Replies:
          RE:AGE / VALUE:   Getting Started posted by JimW. on 4/21/2003 at 7:39:09 PM
Nothing dumb about those questions. In states which have regulations concerning unlicensed motor bicycles, the limit for displacement is generally 50cc. You can usually count on this to put out at least 1.5 hp. You shouldn't need to pedal unless you want to at this power level, and it shouldn't strain bike components.

There's no right answer about engine location; otherwise kits wouldn't be available in so many configurations. It generally comes down to personal preference. There's a lot to be said for keeping the center of gravity low, but most of the weight of a human body is above the waist and above the bike's seat; and that's considerably more than the weight of a small engine. There are also many choices for how the engine's power is transferred to the driven wheel. Systems which drive the tire itself are simpler than those which drive the hub or spokes; however tire-friction is prone to slippage in wet weather. But, basically it's a matter of taste.

One engine location you hardly ever see is above the top tube and behind the head (steerer)tube. Getting the power to the rear wheel would be more complicated, but it certainly could be done by exercising some mechanical creativity. The cool thing about this, is that the engine would be more visible up there, therefore more "hot rod" than in most other locations. It would be fairly simple to work it into a streamlined fairing containing its fuel tank. Power could be transmitted to the rear via a shaft, with a bevel gear set at the seat tube location to change the power path to the usual transverse orientation. From that point, chain and sprocket or pulley and belt could be used to drive the rear wheel. Granted, this may sound weird, but only because everyone else doesn't do it that way. And of course, if you had one of those teeny V8 engines, this would be the ideal location for it.

A simpler way to mount above the top bar would be to use one of those 80s schwinns that had the freewheel built into the BB.Run a chain to the small sprocket and leave the rear to the big sprocket.You would also have 5 speeds with the rear derailer and the pedals stop turning because that iswhere the freewheel is.

          RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   Getting Started posted by JimW. on 4/26/2003 at 5:31:36 AM
Gee Sam, you've been reading my mind again. I got one of those freewheeling cranksets specifically for use on MotoCandiru, for the same reason. It'll have a Nexus7 on the rear. If I can find a 125cc engine, it'll do about 150mph. If I can't find one of those, it's back to multi-Macs.

          RE:AGE / VALUE:   Getting Started posted by retrovideo_atsign_email.com on 4/26/2003 at 7:31:18 AM
Go to www.staton-inc.com. This guy makes high quality machined sprocket hubs that you get laced onto your bike wheel. Also, he sells high quality rear engine motor kits with Honda and other brand motors. Chain drive all the way. He sells on ebay under "motorizedfunproducts". Also check out www.draftprecision.com. This is a rear mount Honda with a fancy belt drive system. Cost is high because the guy makes you buy a whole bike instead of offering a motor kit. These are the best ways to go to motorize a bike. By the time you tinker for months and months, you'll end up spending this much anyway and still may not have a running bike.

My father picked up my bikebug when I was eight years old at a garge sale for ten dollars. Now I'm 23 and I'd like to get it running for my younger brother. It's been sitting for quite a while, and there are a few items I need:
1. Kill button with small spring that sits behind it
2. New roller(would love to have the indestructable wet weather type)
Also do they make a carb kit for bikebugs? Will pay via money order to anybody can supply me with these items.

I am interested in putting a TAS Spitz on a Trike (3 Wheel Bicycle). Haven't doen it - Have got some photos from folks that have.

A guy in Austin, Texas has some Workover 3 Wheel Bikes for sale. (The bikes came from a GM assembly plant where they used them in the plant. The Workman Bike looks heavy duty compared to others I have seen.

Looking for your experience before I buy one and try it.

Mike ,I have a trike with a Free Spirit engine on it, same engine as Tas Spitz. Make sure you use a wheel with a front brake because of the weight of the trike. My trike is a Worksman, heavy duty. It runs well but I am removing it and mounting a 5HP Honda on the back.

Mike,
I had my Bike-Bug mounted on my 24" Scwhinn Tri-Wheeler for a while. It was cool for running erands to the store! People really dug it when I'd load up a couple of grocery sacks and buzz away!
My first ride on it with the motor was slightly less than triumphant However.
I got peddaling up to speed and grabbed the shifter. After a few seconds the motor sputtered to life and took over! I was rolling up the street like nobody's business. I went to turn, forgetting about the turning situation on a trike, and promptly ended up on my head.
Pretty funny. The only thing hurt was my pride.

AGE / VALUE: Leaking oil? Proof of betrayel posted by: Chris on 4/14/2003 at 7:21:09 PM
Spring is here and the seasons right for installing a new blade and replacing the spark plug on the riding mower!
Took a good look at the mower engine. It seems there is all this oil covered with dirt all caked up everywhere. It looks like the engine has been leaking oil out of the seals!
I said: "Oh Wow!" Well,I called and then visited and the fellow said "Of course!" I went on about the model numbers and serial numbers and questioned will it fit under the cowling and hood and all that. Length of drive shafts? and all that. He grinned and said I was making a smart move.

Boy am I excited! The old junk engine will soom be gone,the positive proof that the companies days are truely numbered will be cleaned off.
We won't even have to drill or modify! His eyes narrowed, Oh, No! It drops right in! Were making a switch here and to kick it off right It'll have just a little more power and it's quieter too.
It's a name I'm already familiar with. I did this with the Snapper already! That 5 speed self propelled unit and the snapper drawer catcher powered by a little wonder. Nowe it's time for larger wonders.
Lift back the cover and look. Because it now says:
HONDA
I can assure you that it will not ever leak oil. It will start every time. It will swish thru tall wet grass and not give me any problem. Finally getting ahold of the books that really instruct one how yto change drive belts was wonderful. I installed them myself and saved a bundle and I was happy to do this myself.It was an empowering experience.
Because of that blown seal,because of that oil everywhere, because of the stupidity after over 100 years experience in this industry.I am delighted and happy to fit a better product and to that I will be loyal.

          RE:AGE / VALUE: Leaking oil? Proof of betrayl posted by Chris on 4/15/2003 at 12:29:35 AM
So, I am not doing what they expected me to do. I will not pay to have it repaired, I certainly will not EVER replace it with the same model nor EVER with anything related to that company. I'm not going to tear it apart and replace a seal because the other one is better still. It's a outdated product made to create income for the shops. The waiting 3 weeks because everybody has theirs in for some problem, the expense, the way the counter folks act,the very fact that this is a loser product alone.Lastly because of the very name on the product itself. I'm able to keep the original throttle control as the two work together well. Why? It's quaint! I traded in the older 1960's model that was neat. The transmission was a leaver that you could glide between first and sixth gear oh so gradually. The motor had a pull rope on it if the battery went dead on you. You could tip the whole thing up onto a service bar and change a blade and clean out the deck. The styling. All this company has left is styling and few are gonna stay with it for that alone. I have a mixed sentimental attachment to this company and this tractor. The last model had no rope so you are up a tree, the transmission is re- done and it stupid and awkward and a pain to use. The tipping it up on a service bar had to go because it enabled the user to service blades easier and they wanted you in a shop for that paying transport and charges and yes because somebody may have got hurt and it was a liability perhaps too. My tractor and the company went backwards on me with their products. Not forward to better things that thrill me to own and use. Somebody else has been doing that lately. HONDA. I picked up another of the old style tractors at a garage sale. It's mint, complete (and for now) with the original motor. The one with the lever transmission, the service bar and the recoil rope on the motor. I grew up watching the men and their truck with that neat thing called a lift gate. The shops, the belts on the wall, the many parts that failed and were replaced. The smells of the shops. We got it back and soon discovered that the belts slipped and soon realized that the good men with their neat truck had charged us good and failed to do the job right. It went back and forth and not until I jumped ship to another shop was it fixed right.Now I do that myself too. I remember a old good friend of mine that removed large hedges. He had a tow truck triver wrap a chain around it. They stood there and pulled the hydralic leaver. He did it himself from there. He grinned at me and said: "The old man is no fool!" I know what he'd say about this leaking oil.
Paint comming off in strips also, as they cheapened/meddled with the rustproofing/painting process. I'll redo that as I love this original color!

Why no whole new machine? They are more expensive than ever. Thousands. Go price commercial mowers. Thousands.
It's a racket and it's expected that the customer will pay a premium price because after all, the customer will be making money off of it so the makers want more for it when it is new. That is plain, bold faced greed. They lock you in as best as they can. The companies pay it but they learn how to maintain everything themselves. They have to to have money to expand the business and to survive competition. It gets ugly. Planned obsolescence cuts across many industries and firms but with the same devastating consequences. Unhappy customers searching for a way to leave it or to change it. I told them years ago: "Gentlemen, You've lost an entire generation! Mine. But my grandfather loved and was loyal to you. I cannot be.

          RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Don't sell service, sell something that doesn't need it! posted by Chris on 4/15/2003 at 5:48:21 PM
I looked up last night at a comercial with a company selling lawn equipment.More tractors. They offered and mentioned and showed customer service. The showed us a stupid little trailer with the logo and name of the maker.
So when it breaks down you call them out and they haul it in for you. Sure lets have the company strong arm this matter for us! Lets pay even more $$ to have it ride in a chariot to the repair shop! The factory authorized repair shop no less? Geez! Is this trailer for hauling it in alone or does it contain all the tools and technicians to fix it there at your driveway for you on the spot? Or does their definition of "service" still mean that I wait three weeks to get it back? No mention of a free loaner either.
This "service" as they say really removes your choice of where and to whom you take it. Don't be fooled! You'll pay a lot for their little trailer to visit you. They probably pressure you into signing an expensive contract when you buy it right off in in the beginning. They make and inferior product and let you know they are going to retain control over it. Besides your money can be earning THEM interest instead of YOU in the interm before it breaks down! Hey I understand it all now! All about using a customer for every dime! I thought: "Forget that!" WHO MAKES THE MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION? is the real issue. Colors and logo's are not important. They are still selling service and making sure you are forced to buy that service. They are not making products that don't need service or products that are able to be services easily by the owner. It's the same outdated concept that doomed Philco, R.C.A. Zenith and other big names I have already forgotten ( Zenith is the sole survivor, and in name alone!)
I saw this feature on the loss of the American T.V. industry. While they refused to change and did things the same- old- way and focused on service, the Japaneese made T.V.'s that didn't need it. J.V.C. Matshusta, Sony.Samsung (Korean) These are the names we know today! Not Philco and the rest. An American company invented the V.C.R.! Did you know that? Akio Morita took a small tape recorder company and made Sony into a modern day powerhouse! How? Quality products you didn't need some guy in goofy overalls in your living room to constantly fix.
Nobody repairs a T.V. today! Same with lawn mower engines. I see the Honda Marine Ads. It's comforting, wonderful! That beloved name! Out on the lake with anything else? Shudder! Out on water? Without Honda Marine? When I have a boat, that too will be powered by a HONDA!
Don't sell service sell something that does not need it. The definition of service should always be. Service: Doing the jo as it ought to be done.

          RE:RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Don't sell service, sell something that doesn't need it! posted by Chris on 5/4/2003 at 8:37:34 PM
Take a look at the motors on commercial equipment and especially at the motors on rental equipment. I walked thru the yard and everything was Honda, Honda, Honda.
It started wonderfully on the first pull.
Hot, cold, start and re-start. Every time, on the first pull and I didn't have to pull that hard on the rope as compared to the Briggs motors either. No awful wrist spraining catching and pull back snapping. Ever pull the rope started on a Briggs mower engine and you'll understand what I referr to. I was 16 and shook my wrist and cursed it back then. I never was hurt mind you but the Hondas are free of this experience. SMOOTH BABY, SMOOTH! I am seeing Japanese generators in boxes in a shop that historically has shunned motorized equipment that was not Briggs and/or Techumseh. Still, no Honda mowers or motors. Have to field trip across 4 towns over for that stuff where their spirit is very different. I have never seen those generators there before, so even this place is changing with the times. What does bother me quite a bit dispite the attitude you read is. Is that Briggs and Techumseh are a part of the fabric of the country that I love to the death. This is an U.S. company employing our people in our land. The history goes way back and it is facinating to study and read about. For all the joy I take in replacing it/ dumping it when it fails and betrays. For all the simple hapiness there is when the Honda or Mitsubishi works as it should. This is (they are) a product(s) made in a foreign land(s) with profits going out of the country. In time, unless they change and change radically, there will be no Briggs and Techumseh. In the future, it will be only a name on a B grade Honda motor except that Honda does not offer anything B grade. Another huge dynasty with historic roots winding down into the good soil of our land will cease to exist. What grew and flowered turned out to ugly, unreliable, and troublesome and no longer was hardy enough to stand up to and overcome competition in a changed and global marketplace. It did not change, products did not improve and new inovation did not appear and save the companmy from itself. We have been witness to a thing that we could not change and the people that read customers letters did not take the warning signs serriously until it was too late. I remember that feeling in my wrist, the leaking oil, the trouble starting, the expensive repair, the waiting, the letdown and heartbreak of a thing we make here no longer being a source of pride but now is a hassle. Most people only have to learn once and then the next time a product is shopped for the customer recalls this or that and they look for a way to excape that experience from happening again. I asked the Honda fellow:Will it do that? He said: "No."
I believe that one day it will just stop after enough market share is lost, after enough employees are let go, after the whole company moves away and takes the machinery that makes the things with them. The empire will be folded up, factories and offices will be closed, cleaned up and razed. It'll be a great excuse to finally break the back of a union if there still is one. Ex-employees will be out searching for re-training in a bad economy. Nothing left to do except face the expensive task of cleaning up a likely highly polluted brownfield site. The business of small engine repair will be forever changed and way, simplified. It'll be almost like a t.v. that does not need to be repaired. Not quite like that as the nature is different but it'll be changed none the less. Honda power equipment is now part of our country and our experiences in using it. Yet it is not really ours not like Briggs and Techumseh have been. Years ago but not that long ago, there used to be repair shops in every gas station. Two or three bays for repairing and maintaining cars. Then all over it turned different and the equipment was moved and hoists removed and people let go and all of a sudden that space was for selling soda pop, candy, chips, and bottled water. The many oil companies have already stopped selling service. They sell consumables. A gas station is now really a foodmart that also happens to sell gasoline. This concept will be taken further and it'll change forever another way that we do something else.
The trend in washing machines is towards front loaders,instead of top loader styles. Less parts to break, the clothes come out cleaner, you save water, no tall plastic agitator to twist and ruin clothes and no interlocking plastic/rubber gears to fail on you. Instead a stainless steel drum that just spins. They are getting the message of selling something that will not need servicing. Or at least not as often.

No shuddering strupidity in the face of tall wet lawn. Tools are for removal and reinstallation not rebuilding.

REPRODUCTIONS:   2000 Schwinn Panther posted by: Zach on 3/30/2003 at 2:07:49 AM
I have a 2000 Schwinn Panther that has never left the showroom floor and is in mint condition. I'm strapped for cash and this is the first thing to go. Where would the best outlet be to sell the thing?
