What mechanical engineers do in their free time

Recommended Posts

Ive got a 5hp motor and a stingray bicycle just waiting to be combined. :P

It's been done and there are lots of guides to get you started. What I really think would be cool would be if you took an engine out of a Honda CR 80 from the past 14 years ( I have a "96 when I was 13 and it did over 70mph, I think my parents didn't want me anymore ) and use that. Liquid cooled 80cc engine and it makes 27 horsepower and revs over 14,000rpm stock. Do not be fooled by these engines my friend, they are monsters for there size and weight. They have 6 speed close ratio transmissions. I would honestly think if you ever dropped the clutch it would tear that stingray frame in half if it didn't rip the spokes out of the stock wheel.

 

I 5hp briggs just doesn't do it for me, less power, no revs, no gear changes, and is probably comparable as that 80cc engine and transmission.
