I Built a Mountain-Climbing Motorcycle for $200

Prone to taking things literally, we shoved a wee lil’ engine into a bicycle to make a motor...cycle. Prone to making bad decisions, we also tried to ride it across a treacherous mountain pass at the onset of Canadian winter. [Details below]

  • These motorized-bike kits are very reliable for those with the skills to build one, but not so much for those who buy one that somebody else built, if you can't build one of these bikes, you shouldn't have, or even want one of them, they can actually be dangerous for these types of people, it's not really that hard, just about anybody can do it.

  • I converted my long wheel base recumbent bicycle, to a E-bike by adding a front hub motor. In parts of Europe, E-bikes are becoming the normal. Course mine is Electric, so range is limited to battery size. But seems a lot more reliable, then what you built. You should look into E-bikes. Heck using Hub motors you could build a the bike from Akira!

  • Increased energy density means increased charging times..... Bikes need to go back to ethanol, not lithium, or a ride will primarily consist of waiting at charging stations and less riding.

  • NEVER just accept the world like it is and be like "eh, oh well I can't have what I want so I'm just gonna ride this tiny shitty motorcycle because I can't afford or store anything proper...", unless you're to blame for the circumstances. Think of an ideal world, and begin shaping it, start with yourself.

  • Miserable driveability, incredible noise pollution, and a thick smog are my takeaways from seeing these go past me in the bike lane. A remarkable overview of something that I really dislike. The 2-stroke engine kits may be the cheapest way to motorize a bike, but they are far from the best.

  • Yeah the Chinese motors that are 80cc are mor like 66cc and the 100cc are more like 79cc because of the discrepancy in what portion they measure. Haven't finished the video yet, but bet money if he doesn't put a larger sproket on the back and smaller on the front he wont have the low end torque to go up any decent hills. He'll lose some on the top speed, but what's the point in speed if you cant go up the hill. Edit- yea I see he went with a bigger back sproket. Also glad to see he went with the brake upgrade and thread locker is a must on almost anything that bolts down on these things. Building one with my 10 year old this winter.

  • I made one of these out of spare parts (not the engine) and rode it 1500 miles for transportation and it got the job done. Averaged 70ish mpg and had fun every moment. I kept it 16-1 oil ratio and the only reason i don't drive it now is that I blew out the spark plug. It doesn't do much in way of climbing, but if you keep the chain tight (was loose in video) it's practically maintenance free

  • Reminds me of my first motorised bicycle, early 90s. 30cc two stroke engine strapped to the luggage carrier of my single speed Raleigh racing bicycle. It was supposed to be a 12-speed but by the time I bought it, the previous owner had stripped the damaged derailleur. I fitted the kit, bought from a local manufacturer just south of Jo'burg. What bags of fun. Cops wouldn't stop it on the road, no helmet, plenty of cuts, grazes and bruises, until it eventually died, after a few months. The legal framework to ride one of these in a modern Europe, doesn't exist. They're trialling electric scooters in some cities in the UK and hopefully down the road we'll have an opportunity to legalise motorised electric bicycles. I don't think we want to go back to dirty two stroke mixes. Plus an electric motor will be torquier.

  • I have built two of those. I almost got killed on the first one. I was riding along in the bike lane when that cheezy clamp on made out of tin chain tensioner got pulled into the rear wheel, ripping out several spokes and locking the wheel, causing me to crash hard. There was a sidewalk on the right, and a lane of fast moving traffic on the left. Fortunately I went down to the right. Had I gone left, I would have instantly been hit and killed by a speeding car. I still got banged up pretty good. A couple of years later I built another one. The cheap crappy tensioner got replaced by a heavy duty one mounted to the engine case. The rag joint rear sprocket got replaced by a clamshell mount that bolted directly to the rear wheel hub, so it was perfectly centered and wouldn't break the spokes. The engines are junk. I went through 2 of them in maybe 1000 miles or so, the bike is still parked in the shed in the back yard with a blown engine. The 80cc engines are actually 66cc when measured properly. Front and rear V brakes are more than adequate. Some people build these bikes with only a coaster brake on the rear. I'd say that is pushing it. Some day I may drag that bike out and put a proper 4 stroke engine on it. There is one hard and fast rule with bikes like this. They WILL fail at some point. They are probably 100 times more likely to fail than a proper non chinese motorcycle. NEVER ride one into something that you cannot pedal your way out of.

  • Something nobody really ever mentions. Chainsaw engines are the ideal motors for a bicycle. They have ridiculous horsepower, and torque. Chainsaw engines also have ridiculously strong bearings on both sides of the crankshaft, that are extremely over built, and you can put thousands of hours on a chainsaw engine, running it full throttle. The cylinder bores on commercial saws, have Nikasil chromoly nitride, and they are indestructible. I had a lesser quality vintage Homelite 67cc chainsaw engine on a mountain bike. It had 4.3 horsepower. It would go 51 mph. My friend had a real Stihl chainsaw engine on a small BMX, and it was ridiculously fast, even faster than my Homelite bike. I think many of the "kits" are only around 1.5 horsepower.
