My new project is 80% finished. I've used the gears off a mountain bike.
The bike has travelled max speed of 61kph with a single gear set up. I am
expecting to gain alot off the line speed with alot more top speed with the
7 gears on the back. 70kph - 75kph would be nice
A short video of my new motorized bicycle. This is the Grubee Skyhawk
engine kit I installed on a Schwinn Jaguar I picked up at a local Pawn Shop
for $30. I also put the largest seat I could buy on it and new handlebars,
fenders, paperboy basket and bike computer. The head llight is a $10,
12volt dc flood light connected to a small sla battery in the basket.
Had trouble keeping the chain on so I fabbed a spring chain tensioner using
a derailer sprocket and aluminum bar stock.
I had to create a custom mount for the front of the motor to work with the
large diameter down tube. Other than that the kit was pretty easy. Came
with a twist throttle and kill switch for the bars. Was lucky and found a
double brake lever at my local bike shop so the clutch is on the left and
both brakes work from one lever on the right. The motor kit and used bike
only set me back about $200. The new seat and all the accessories about
The project received a few snears durring the assembly but as soon as the
naysayers rode it they fell in love with it. It is a blast to ride. We are
considering another kit for a smaller bike to ride the grandkids on. A
used 20 inch bike and motor kit will be cheaper than buying a mini bike.
