I frequently get asked lots of questions about the build process of my bikes, so I put together this slideshow that shows the stages of the construction process.
Anonymous asked: Hey man im in the process of finishing my board tracker. What clutch did u use and what size pulleys/ sprockets?
On the red bike I use a Comet 40/44 cvt to a 37t rear sprocket
On the 350 racer I am in the process of refining the gear ratios so I can not give you any comment on that setup yet. I am currently debating going the cvt route on this bike as well because it works so well.
Anonymous asked: Hi vekst love your creation and enthusiasm for these bikes. I have one of these v twin Briggs motors but it is a vertical crankshaft engine, the question I want to ask is do you know if I can use the engine in a horizontal position. cheers eddy from the uk
Technically yes you can. However you will need to make a few changes all of which are relatively simple with the use parts from the horizontal version of the engine.
First thing that will need to be modified is the oil splasher which is located on the bottom of the crankshaft.
Second you will need a carburetor and intake manifold from the horizontal engine.
I have no idea if these parts are interchangeable but theoretically this is how it would be done. Thanks for your question and good luck on your project.
Memorial Day weekend race footage. I managed to get 2nd in class and 49th out of 133 drivers and I’m pretty happy with that. I think with a few tweaks to my current setup I will be able to bring in a first place victory.
Don’t mind the off corse spin out on the first attempt that is completely normal for me. I tend to be a bit over zealous on the first run.
Hi followers! Big news, the rail bike is up for sale on ebay.
Hey followers! I just wanted to check in a give you all an update on my current projects. As most of you know I have been taking a break from building motorcycle and focusing on some of my other passions for a while. This humble little car is my current obsession, have been working really hard to take it from a stock car with a few mechanical problems to a reliable, daily driven / weekend racer. Hopefully I will be able to get a few videos this weekend so you all can see this thing in action.
Here are a list of modifications for those who are interested.
91 Mazda Miata 1.6
K-sport coilovers, 195/50r15 Hankook Ventus rs3, Cheap 15” wheels, ignition timing advanced 14 degrees for more low end torque, Personal steering wheel, and vintage chrome mirrors.
If you’re bored and got a few minutes to kill come take ride with me around my neighborhood on my v-twin board track racer.
This is part 1 of a 4 part video I did, If you like it and wanna see more just snoop around my youtube channel.
Anonymous asked: where can I learn motor-bicycle construction? I'm wondering how you did because, all of these builds are very nice.
Very good question thanks for asking.
I think I can sum it up in a few easy steps.
2.Research!!! I can’t stress this enough. This is key to making a good looking bike.
3. If you have no mechanical skill or very little, start with a 50cc kit engine.
4. Once you have the basics of mechanics buy your self a cheap 90amp welder and practice practice practice, watch lots of how to videos on youtube and talk to people with more knowledge.
I hope this helped and I wish you the best of luck.
