It supplies a spark to start yer engine, then the thing runs on just the charging system. You have to have a kick start bike. It replaces the battery.

I was looking at a little 250 rebel the other day and tryin to brainstorm a little mini chop rat bike out of it. For what those Hardknock's cost, I could actually build something much cheaper that I'm actually allowed to ride on a decent road around here. Even th 50's have to be tagged and insured in my state because they have a gearbox.

I can't find a decent XS I can afford around here. The price of the 650's have gone through the friggin roof the last couple years. I really wish Yamaha would re-release the XS650 Special II from like 82. Spoke wheels with option of the mags, no frills, with a nice 2010 electrical system. They are a great starter size and a fun little bar hopper size. I think they would totally be a hot seller to the custom folks.

That's cool as hell dude!. Show us more! how did you do your tranny/final drive? Got a pic of yourself sittin or riding it? That's gotta be a little awkward to sit on, but what custom isn't? . I'd love to see that with a coffin tank or a nice long lean tank.

here are some more pics and yeah It is a bit awkward.
It had to be stretched out so long, doest fit me real good - dad on the other hand is taller fits him nicely and it is his bike so it works out.
Final drive is chain 1:1 ratio, same as a bug
it is a super beetle trans - just have to flip the ring gear to make it drive the right direction
All 4 gears are there, though you only really need 3 and 4.
there is a door lock actuatior that "rolls" the shifter linkage to hit 3 & 4. The actuator is controlled from that button on top the suicide shifter.

haha, coffin tank would be killer but the one you see is welded in

Nice thing about a hot looking ride like that is that you'll neversee another one parked by yours. Great looking machine!

Anybody know the answer to this? - I looked all over and can't find it: What is the weight ratio front/rear for a Honda Goldwing 1800?

A lot on the front and even more on the back?

Call your local Honda shop. If they don't know then tell them you are going to buy a Yahama then.

Wow ... didn't expect that answer. But on second thought, maybe that makes sense for an unloaded bike since with riders, the ratio would shift to the rear.

Where did you get the info?

spend today cleaning up a major oil mess from the bike yesterday. i'm very lucky i didn't lay it down with oil all over the rear tire coming off the freeway. anyhow, i had to disassemble the rear end to get to all the oil residue, so i pulled the rear plastics, moved the rear lamp forward 5" and relocated the plate (for now). i really need to figure out how to take that seat/pan and make a cafe seat/pan/pod for the old girl.

Just do what Excello did with his bike. Take an old helmet and get creative.

that's the idea for the pod, it's the dip in the side of the seat and the uprake on the rear of the frame rails that have me stumped.

wow, musta had someone watchin' out for me... not only did I have oil all over the rear rubber, but the air pressure was down to 11psi!!!!!!!!!! the bike is now running well again, no oil coming out of the breather, air cleaner only has air in it now. tomorrow morning will be a nice ride before i head to the coast with a pack of teenagers.
