At first I thought that said, "gay version of Luke's bike." :twisted: :lol:

The frame looks the same as mine, just modified in a different way. At 0:01 you can see where the frame folds. I wish I knew what it's from so I could try to score another.

Cool find! 8)

I looks like it won't even lift the front end, and it has a higher CG. For any comparison to Luke's bike, the rider must be fighting to keep the front wheel on the ground :)

IDK, it looks like he lifted the front end at least once under power, but I agree it's nothing like Luke's bike's power! :wink:

I'm thinking that a folding frame is really NOT the best frame for that kind of power, but that's just me, I like all my fingers, toes and my nose they way they are now. :P

Cool how they have utilized a bicycle crank for the motors kick start, complete with pedal...

At some point the frame will bend, sure, but to snap it would be special - my guess is it'd have to be rusted to shit before you could get a real snap. Personally, I was expecting the forks to fail because I know they're made of suck.

That said, I think this is one of the best folding frames to use, if you can find one, because it'd be extremely easy to add a top tube and gussets to beef it up - you can practically make the triangle as big as you want. If you did that right you'd still be able to fold it too.

Here is just one of the gas bikes that are going to kick Luke's ass at
the upcoming SoCal race at Grange Motor Circuit on Sat Oct 22nd 2011 :mrgreen:

Only 6 days to go.

That's a VERY fast looking bike. With a CVT tranny, he can stay in the powerband the whole time, and it should accelerate insanely hard. I hope there are many more gas bikes like it so we have some solid competition. :-)

Finished the mechanical side of the race bike today.

You running hookworms? I thought you were using the Pirelli's?

Here's another fast gas bike #6 who raced at Willow Springs last June 18th
You got competition if you don't burn up. :mrgreen:

I didn't want to listen to you cry about it if I won running the Pirelli's. :roll: This is all bicycle parts, except the front brake which is from a dirtbike (cause I'm #230lbs and bicycle brakes melt-down in about 5minutes of my racing). I'm bringing 4 spare tubes and 2 sets of hookworms, and hopefully that will last through the event and won't cause serious injury to anyone when they randomly get flats from rolling up off the bead in corners.

This guy #4 is already paid but may not be able to make it.

Dan Taylar the bike builder from Victorville will be there with the bike anyway.

Those look like some powerful bikes! I'm very excited for the race. Those CVT trannys completely take away the advantage of a wide powerband that electrics normally have over gas bikes. I'm pumped to get to race against some fast stuff.

Gas vs electric is the only reason I play. I had 2 different racecar road racing options and a superbike track day I would have done if it was just electric vs electric.
