Fine, as you wish. I am just saying, you are on many occasions going to wish you had the ability to pedal.

Yeah what if you ran out of gas? What state do you live in? In some states there are power limits for riding vehicles without a license.

I'm pretty sure that you don't know what I am going to wish. iPaintball this will get atleast 130mpg I think I will be smart enough to fill it up before I leave and I don't even plan on going more the 50miles.

I am pretty sure that I do, as I have witnessed many situations where people who are operating motorized vehicles would have killed for another power option aside from walking. The fact that you could set this bike up to be pedaled OR motorized very easily makes me wonder why the hell you would want to scrap the pedal system altogether.

I know it could be done easily but it would just be a little more money and right now I am trying not to spend over 100 bucks. I've already spent a ton of money this summer. And it would just be another thing that could go wrong, since I don't have very much experience with this I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I can always take the chain off the motor and switch it to the pedals if i really need to get hom and something went wrong.

Ok I changed my mind someone that I know weighed a 3hp briggs and straton engine that they had and it was 37lbs so thats too much. So we decided to use craftsman 42cc chainsaw engines I think that should be enough because they sell friction drive 40cc engine kits that go 30-35mph. I should get more speed with a chain driven.

I finally got the chainsaw I'm using and last night I started to disassemble the chainsaw. I was going to just buy a new clutch that would fit a bike chain but I don't think I will be able to find one that will fit. So do you guys think I would be ok just grinding down the teeth on the outer clutch housing and just getting a bike sprocket weld on to the outside and use that? Any potential problems? Thanks
