I just posted about the Boozhound Laboratories, but this is worth another peep, check out this homemade mini-bike….
I have had the idea of building a minibike rattling around in my head (like the ball in a spraycan) for a couple years. Of course I wanted to build it from scratch, and scrounge up as many of the parts as possible, since I would not feel right spending good money on a minibike. Last summer I found an engine at The Black Hole, and the project began.
I got some neat knobby wheelbarrow wheels from Home Depot, and ordered the stuff I couldn’t scrounge up from a go kart company. The new parts included a centrifugal cluch, a combination brake and sprocket assebly for the rear wheel, a chain, and a twist throttle. I also found a new Tecumseh carburetor on eBay.
