I want to build a tricycle with a weedwacker or a chainsaw. Or sumthing along those lines. A bike wouldn't be that bad either.I don't really want to spend that much. If u have any plans or suggestions tell me. Thanx.

I built a minibike with a weed whacker engine. It does about 10 Mph. You will need a realy big sprocket on the back wheel. Good luck :-)

I will sell my go-kart to anyone who wants it. It is in the trade in times now and i really need to sell it before we move. It goes about 40 mph and has almost new everything. New Carbeurator, New back tires, New paint job ( shiny Black ) a rear view mirror with roll cage 5hp tecumseh engine

how do you mount a weed wacker engine on a minibike

-- chris tejada (magikris91@aol.com), August 19, 2004.

A weedwacker engine wont budge a mini bike or go cart. First a 2 stroke dosnt have engough power since 2 stroke are known for speed and not power. Second its just too small. You cant put a 3/4+ shaft centrifugal clutch on it witch is the most comon for a mini bike.

just take a push scooter, the ones with big wheels and take a 2 stroke and attach it to the back like spring loaded so you can just push on it to go its aalot cheaper and easier then dealing with chains and all that crap, here is an example and some pics:http://www.hometown.aol.com/mrminibike/index.html
