Lets start a thread of old school homemade motorized bikes/scooters, no engines after 1970 if you can help it. Yours or anyones... Popular Science/Mechanix or your own brew. ;)

Sorry, I didn't see HOMEMADE in the instructions. The Moto Scoot with the finger has a nonstandard engine. The Sportsman with the girls was a dealer display bike and never used.

53 or so Shelby and I had a 53 or so Briggs on the shelf.... Had it running but need to refine a better shaft, bearings etc through the pedal hanger and play with gearing as it only went about 4 MPH lol.... Was up in the woods in NY and engine and seat on it were toast...
Used a old sissy bar pad for seat... I like how they used a rear leaf to suspend seat...
I like the old home made ones..

She says that it is her motorbike and a young strong woman is always right. The big babe (wife) is not professionally connected to the red light. I carry handcuffs with me. Honda XR 80 in a 1930s Service Cycle frame.

This is a 36-37 mixed Simplex with a XR 80cc Honda engine four speed. Primitive brake so it is a real exciting and fun death machine.
