Convert a Bicycle Into a Motorized Bike!

We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw these plans.

All children muse to themselves (or anyone that will listen) that it would be *so cool* if bikes had motors on them. Now they can!

These motorized bike plans call for a 1 hp air-cooled engine for the powerplant. They say that the bike will top out at 35 MPH.

Though it may now be possible, we can't vouch for this acutally being a good idea. Actually, it seems crazy, considering all the custom work you'll need to do to the bicycle. You'd probably be better off building a scooter from scratch. But, there's no accounting for novelty, and if you do build this project, *please* send us a photo! We'd love to publish it.
