Oh, I figured it being Youtube and all he was going to crash and explode at the end.

It's nice to see there's a way for kids to learn about this stuff. Those bikes are simple enough to begin to learn how to wrench.

I'm going to have to ask you to stand back. The power of this thing could get out of control.

After 5 tries my front mount plate I made finally fit to the motor. It looks simple but I sure had a lot of trouble with it.

As you can see I used a hockey puck as a motor mount. I wish I could say it's my idea, but it's not. I'm sorry I can't remember the genius's name that thought of it, but he's on a motor assisted bicycle forum somewhere. I've looked at so many mounts on forums I can't remember now, but this was the one I liked best for my purposes. I'm not quite through with it yet, the muffler clamp I was going to use ended up too short. I have a plan, but it will have to wait till tomorrow.

I also redid the mounting studs today that I already redid yesterday, because last night I got a brain storm about doing it differently. Now I have grade 5 screws in the rear mounts that I chopped off about 1/2" longer than the stock studs. This will give me a place to mount my custom spring loaded chain tensioner that I haven't invented yet. As soon as I'm finished with it I'll probably paint the mount black.

I just got my old Marin MTB back in shape a month ago and so far I burned off 10lbs of blubber I need to get rid of 30 more to be at my "Ideal Weight".
To the point I was riding up a hill the other day and by golly I could have used one of these or one of the new electric assist motors.

This is my finished front motor mount made from a hockey puck.



Now the motor is mounted in my China Girl. Stand back, I don't want you to get hurt.

Are those "water" bottles the gas tanks?

Yes, they're fuel bottles for a camp stove.
