Boyd's Cycle

This is the second prototype I have built with the same parts. Unfortunatley, the more I learn the more I see what I've done wrong. The relatively small motor I have had trouble turning that wide tire. So I am starting a more carefully researched motorcycle with the same parts. My new plan is going to stay as light weight as it can be.
