Remember those little orange dirt bikes? Had a lot of fun summers on that thing...Ha!! And here I am 40 years later still riding the wind. But any how that's bout it for me , Just saying Hey yall !!!!

    My First bike was a 45 pound Doodle-bug...
    Came in Parts/Pieces not whole. Took a Used 2.5 HP reel lawnmower motor to get it going... Tough to find a Horizontal shaft motor in my early days....Most motors were Vertical back in them days... Ohhhhhh Am I Old....

    Actually I joined up for the advice of people who know more about what I work on than I do. For instance , currently I am replacing the primary sprockets and chain and I've ran into a snag where the sprockets aren't lined up and the face of the compensating sprocket is being chewed off.

    You not that old are ya Bubbie? they didn't have the old washing machine motors on em did they?....LOL

    dbmg has it Correct.....
    Ask that Question so ALL can read and give a Response....

    part of my answer would be Alignment .... Spacers needed or not needed... KISS

    Yes in fact as I remember One of the motors DID have a peddle arm step down starter... (washing machine for sure) Lol
    Wished I had that one back today...

    see your question in the forums... Maybe here to start with...
    Transmission,Clutch and Primary (Drive Train)
