3 speed chainsaw belt driven scooter

“I built a gas powered inverted push scooter using a chainsaw for a motor, two customized pulleys, and v-belt. I later added patios instead of the foot pegs and an aluminum cover for the rear end. It worked great and my son would go about thiry miles an hour, and me being almost three times his weight went about 10-15 mph…”Link.

    Dude this is old news, we used to do this when I was a kid. the only difference is that we would mount a frame above the back tire instead of flipping the frame and we could get speeds of 40 mph easy
