Installing a motor on a BMX bike...

Unread postAuthor: D-Roc » Sun May 21, 2006 1:01 pm

It looks fairly easy installing a motor on to a BMX bike. It's just cutting, mounting, welding, lining up, and wiring...right? I have everything to do this (BMX bike, tools, power tools). I just need a motor now. Which motor should I use that can fit a BMX bike, but have at least 3HP. I want to hit at least 15mph...Any ideas?

Yeh...I just like going fast...Should I go with a motor or stick with a HPV (human-powered vehicle)? Anyone know how to hit 20mph with a HPV?

Lol, I've been scared of mountains ever since I crashed. I was mountain biking and I was going VERY fast because the mountain is pretty steep. I was too nervous to think so I hit the front break instead of the back break and I got tossed a couple feet.

But will a lawn mower motor be good?

A lawn mower engine on a bike?? That might make it kinda heavy.

If your really intent on doing this, i sagest a chainsaw engine. The lawnmower engine would have to hang off 1 side to far to be pratacable. With electric you would run out of cord. The pulse jet has allready been done. Thats as far as i'm going on this idea!

Pulse jet? What's that?

EDIT: I did some research and DAYUM! Thanks for suggesting that. I'm actually going to try this. Should I build one for my go-kart, BMX bike, or Hot Wheels car :P?
