    Homemade Chainsaw Bike



    Being a little boy when I rode a bike and was late somewhere, I always wanted to attach a motor to my bike and rush faster than the wind.
    Of course, after that many years passed and I began to study with everything else. But this idea never left me.
    In a busy week, I did not find anything to restore, so I decided to make my old dream a reality.
    I decided to upgrade my mountain bike by adding a motor from chainsaw.
    I thought that this process would be easy, but as it turned out it was a very difficult task full of unexpected problems.
    It turns out that the addition of the engine from the chainsaw is not enough, it was necessary to come up with a gearbox, since the revolutions of this motor are very high.
    What came out of this you can see on the video.

    We’re those pop rivets? May I suggest you upgrade quickly if you plan on keeping ridding that bike. Those rivets will leave you stranded somewhere.

    RadioMan,

    Thank you for your feedback, but I have already disassembled it and are already working on a new project using this motor and bicycle.
