An old rear end with one side cut off would make a bad ass base. Probably wouldn't give enough speed reduction though.

Try a cheap 3 speed riding lawn mower transmission. You'll have to weld it up so it's not open and you get your choice of speeds. I made a chicken rotisserie out of one of those, a gear reduction motor, and a 10' joint of pipe once.

Build it on a lawn mower chassis so she sits on the seat and the wheel is where the motor was. Or a scooter, like and old Vespa frame.

I got the motor for my small frame 90% of the way back together tonight. I was missing some hardware and had to call it a night but hope to have it back in and running by the weekend. You know just in time for the nice weather.

I not sure if any of you have a KTM 950/990. I have a Super Enduro rear wheel with a slightly narrower rear rim that I used for full blown knobbies I'd like to trade for a stock rear wheel so I can go back to the fatter tires. This wheel works great for the less expensive 140/80 tires

Send me a PM or email

Short and to the point Mike! We were thinking something central for the NeOh region, say, Ray's Place in Kent?

Oh yeah... IN!
