an AWARD WINNING* 50cc 'drag' bike to be towed behind the diesel outfit!
NOT A SERIOUS DRAG BIKE! IT'S NEVER GOING TO BREAK ANY RECORDS!
current fastest run:- 22MPH
* IT WON RUNNER UP IN THE CUSTOM CLASS AT THE MANCHESTER BIKE SHOW 2018
After a night on the beer me and Flux decided to have a go at each building a trailer to two behind our respective chops. String had already started on one. I went with a one wheeled design that slowly morphed into a 50cc drag bike..... it will still be towed behind my outfit.
I kinda knew the shape I wanted and started looking. Found that the shape I wanted was already available as the wheel 'spats' from a Cessna light aircraft, result. Found a modern moped front wheel on eBay ( it's the rear on my design), so I was up and running. Then I found this little Honda PC50K1 engine and things started getting..... different.
front forks are cut down Honda SH50, front wheel from a Honda NC50. Tank is from 'bicycle motor', rear mudguard is a fibreglass 'Harley' thing, nose cone is an old MG headlamp shell.
it's got a hot rod style 'scallop' paint job with a powder coated frame.
wanted a nose cone on it, found a old 9" head lamp shell on eBay, result again! and made a starting handle
it's been out on the street and it works!
hole in the side is for the starting handle.
paint job is superb, thanks Dave!
new speed record of 22MPH!, scary as shit! and it will go faster..........
If you have to ask why? then you will never understand...........
Q. Is it road legal?
A. only as a trailer and that's doubtful!
Q. Why use such a wimpy engine?
A. Because it a nice little 'compact' engine? it's only for fun and it's a mighty 1.8HP!!!!!!!!!!
Q. why not tune the engine?
A. it's a push rod moped engine, tuning it would probably blow the crank!
