Shocking Motorcycle Crash into Bicycles 4/27/2013
Rider hits cyclists coming out of a turn on Mulholland Hwy. Cyclists didn't
appear to have serious injuries. Note about cyclists and riders co-existing
on this famous 2 mile stretch of road. Even though bicycles are up here in
increasing numbers, this is the first time a bicycle has been hit by a
motorcycle In the four years I've been up here. Motorcycle riders of all
skill levels come up here to ride. The rider was not speeding & riding fine
until he hit his foot and stood the bike up causing the bike to go wide. He
then target fixated on the cyclist. . Here is a similar crash -

it. It is a very common type of crash on this turn. Just usually no one is
there and the rider falls alone. It is very unfortunate, and a rare case of
being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We wish the cyclists a speedy

Update on Cyclist from Comments -" This was my friend visiting from England
who was struck first. (I was further back on the hill when the accident
happened and am one of the guys who comes in the picture to his
assistance). He's doing ok today, was discharged from the hospital
yesterday with no broken bones. Miraculously.."

(2nd) WEEDEATER BIKE FINISHED- (HOMELITE ST-155/ SPINDLE DRIVEN)
IT'S DONE! used a 3/4 (.750) long drive socket for the spindle, used a
homelite (clutchless) st-155, 25cc weedeater, mounted to the motor and
frame in 4 places each to allow no movement in the motor, super sturdy.
remounted fuel tank (gets great mpg's), used the stock weedeater throttle,
and mounted it to the seat post (kinda goofy, but it may only be
temporary), it's pretty fast. i drilled out 2 holes inside the muffler,
drilled holes in the airbox, and tuned the carb alittle. runs great, has
alright low end, but top end it'll go maybe 25ish, not too bad for a .750
spindle, last time i had a 1000 spindle, (1 inch) or maybe 1250?
HOW TO MOUNT A SPINDLE TO A WEEDEATER MOTOR
motor= homelite st-155
3/4 (.750) long drive socket, bolted to the flywheel with 1 washer.
if you have a flywheel without fins, you can use a standard bicycle peg,
but for this motor, the socket has proved to be much better, with
absolutely no slippage.
