Awesome stuff! Wish I had the funds right now to do something similar, but maybe in a few years.
Cant wait to see more vid's and pics.
Oooh, do not look at this thread and consider what i'm doing to be 'right', LOL.
I am learning all this the hard and expensive way
But the MAC motor bikes are still performing flawlessly so far. I believe i have those nailed down and perfected. Too bad the thread on the main MAC bike is so long. I think i will eventually condense it.
Money has been what is limiting the progress/speed of this build, unfortunately. Moving into a new place, buying 6 flatproof tires ( we have a big goathead sticker problem here in Utah ), buying desks, tools, other bits and pieces etc have all added up.
But i'm at the point where i only need a few new parts for this bike. I need some weird sized spacers, nuts, bolts, tensioners, and a bunch of elbow grease doing the metal working part.
nechaus; thank you, but i am good on chain, and the shipping from Australia probably cost more than the chain itself
liveforphysics: ah, if i would have only known that beforehand. Luckily for me, the BMX chain stage is only a ~2:1. It will be spinning at approx 5,000rpm at quite a bit less power than what you're putting out. Maybe it will survive.
