How to Build a Bicycle

Motorized bicycles are not electric bicycles. They are bicycles equipped with an engine, muffler, carburetor, ignition, etc, and they are run with gasoline.

Most gasoline-powered bicycles can ride up to 40 miles per hour and get around 150 miles per gallon.

Many of you may feel intimidated at the thought of converting your current bicycle into a motorized bicycle, but with the instructions on how to build a bicycle, it’s simpler than you may think. In addition, to buy a motorized bicycle costs upward near $1000.00. To convert your current bicycle into a motorized bicycle is very economical. Most conversion kits can be purchased for around $200.00.

How To Build a Motorized Bicycle

For most people, purchasing a conversion kit is the easiest way to convert your bicycle into a motorized bicycle. Most kits come with everything you need (except a few tools for assembly). Once you have a kit, you can follow the simple instructions provided:

  1. Remove the rear wheel of the bicycle. Install the drive ring and the motor over the spokes.
  2. Connect the motor belt over the drive ring. Your goal with this step is to create a conveyer belt for the rear tire. The belt will power the bike and replace the chain.
  3. Reattach the rear wheel to the bicycle.
  4. To assemble the motor component, follow manufacturer’s instructions. I recommend the 80cc 2-stroke Gas Engine Motor Set. It is s complete kit tailored to fit most bicycles with a v-frame. All you need is the tools to assemble the kit. Take a look:

  6. Attach the belt to the engine’s drive shaft.
  7. Make sure all nuts and bolts have been tightened and that they are secure.
  8. Install the tensions arm on the handlebars near the brake arms.
  9. Install the kill button next to the tension arm. This is an essential safety function of a motorized bike because it can quickly kill the engine if you have an emergency.
