From what our fathers and grandfathers did not make vehicles! But homemade motorcycles are still relevant in our time. Fans of fast driving hold exhibitions where they show their work. And in some cases, such bikes are in no way inferior, and sometimes even superior to vehicles manufactured at factories.
It is necessary
- - old bike;
- - fuel tank;
- - engine;
- - muffler.
Self-assembly of a motorcycle is a great opportunity to create a vehicle tailored to the individual needs of its owner. First, you must mentally design a motorcycle. Think about how you would like to see it, and what functions it should perform.
Sketch a drawing of your motorcycle on paper. A simple schematic image is enough to make the assembly work easier for yourself.
Now study the provisions of the document "Technical requirements for motorcycles, scooters and mopeds, manufactured on an individual basis." A DIY motorcycle must comply with these guidelines.
The simplest and most versatile option is a homemade mini-moped based on a bicycle. If you choose this option, then a suitable bike must have a thick frame and a large wheel diameter, then you get a reliable vehicle.
Now you can start directly assembling a motorcycle or moped. If you are building on a bicycle, then you need to add a fuel tank, engine and muffler to it.
Use parts designed for motorcycles and mopeds only. Automotive and other parts should only be used in extreme cases. But then you can only use such a motorcycle in the country.
A motorcycle assembled from different parts does not look very beautiful, so it is better to paint it. Clean and degrease vehicle parts before painting. Use water-resistant and heat-resistant paint to protect the parts from the environment for a long time and keep your motorcycle looking good.
