a 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


Back ground to the project

     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.

 Initial drawings and ideas

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.

Questions

    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!
