sure. heres some more detailed pics of it:
the motor mount is made out of angle iron from the hardware store.
everthing on the bike
this was really an experimental rig for me. the set up on this bike is 6s 6ah lipo, exceed monsterpower 46 (50-55 670kv) motor, 0.750 drive roller, 80a mystery brushless esc, 555 timer based throttle. the drive system was a fixed system, so once you set it, it was staying there. i wasnt able to make a more sophisticated drive system like adrian, todd, kepler, or spinningmagnets. i just dont think i have the skills that they have to do so. i wanted to make a cam-type manual "clutch system" engagement lever for it, but i never got around to it. at the moment, its in pieces. ill be getting a new motor to have it back together soon, because my experiment with high kv/small drive rollers didnt pan out so well .
