Posted by: Keith Thompson TITLE: MOTORIZED BICYCLES: attach pulley to spokes
Good morning all. I want to try my hand at taking an older cruiser bicycle and mounting a 2-3 hp vert shaft gas motor on it. I have seen several pictures of these on the net. The rear drive pulley seems to be attached to the spokes. If someone could shed some light on what is used to attach the pulley to the spokes, I would be grateful. Thanks Keith

keith, after reading your post, I noticed that you wanted to mount a ~vertical~ shaft motor on your bike, a lot of the "experts" will tell you that it can~t be done, to expensive, ect ect but i beg to differ, if you will log on to my myspace website at url/retired tinkerer you will find 2 bikes [pictures and videos] that i built for my son and one of his friends. both are powered by 3 1/2 horse b&s lawnmower motors and run about 25mph

Most of the old motorbikes like Whizzer and Monark used the same type of sheave,or pulley,mounted on the spokes. the short bolts go through the sheave holes and a nut and special washer go on the back side. You can buy the mounting kits on e-bay, and sometimes the sheaves. New ones are available at Memory Lane.
