Micro Custom Bikes #2


Hey all,

I have recently finished my 1:12 bike project and thought I would share some pics of it here.

http://img683.imageshack.us/g/dsc03881p.jpg/



The bike is powered by a 5800kv feigao and the losi micro ESC on 2s. I have run it in my basement on carpet but cant get it to wheelie. Im thinking it might not have the traction so maybe once the snow melts outside I might get some wheelie action out of it.

Since Chris Nicastro's Micro custom bikes thread has closed (over 1 year old), everyone should feel free to post pics of their bikes and builds in this thread. I am interested to see if there are any new projects in the making!

Jake

Thanks guys

I might be making a body for it once I get around to making a vacuum molding machine.

The wheels and tires are from the Tamiya 1:12 model kits.

This is the shaft and pulley that I am using.

The gear I have is 66T. You can find them at the bottom of this page.

The plastic pinion I have on my motor is from the Walkera 4#3 but drilled out to 1.5mm ID

The red rear pulley is made by myself and is just made of epoxy.

The rear oil shock is from the Losi Micro-SCT truck.

I made the rear swing arm from one of the cheap cutting boards found the the dollar store.

The red springs used for steering are for the Losi Micro-T.

The battery is a 200mah 2S that I once used in my Micro-T. The servo I have in it is bigger then is really needed for a bike this size. Its the HS-56HB by Hitec.

The purple aluminum spacers/washers are made by HPI 3x6x3.0mm #Z819

The 4 bearings used on the drive shaft are 3x6x2.5mm flanged #B012

For some more pics of the bike and the internals of the fork legs, check out this page

I hope that helps and I hope to see some guys back into the micros!
