FAMILY BIKEAccording to the accepted classification today, mini-bikes called microvesicle for the (dimensions allow to store a car in the apartment and transported her in the car).
And family the mini-bike I called because the design was suitable for me and for my son. Built two mini-bike: from each other they differ only in the headlights, but otherwise identical. Here on this model, the “family” design will be discussed.

The most difficult knot, of course, the frame. It is welded from steel pipes. Moreover, the one-piece crossbar and the front and rear load-bearing composite struts. Bent on the bending machine and cutting billet struts are welded so that the connection resembles, figuratively speaking, a handshake. This is done in order to shift the D-6 engine to the left, for in the same direction and offset sprocket driven due to the large width of the rear wheel (it, like the front from the card).

Bar and a rear strut connected at one point of the inner frame of the trunk. Its main strength member has a bend like a horseshoe from a pipe with a diameter of 20 mm and is welded to the segment of the same pipe, which has a propyl under ordinary fortochny loop. To last screws are attached to the seat base of 10 mm plywood. On top of him glued foam cushion upholstered in leatherette.

The seat also serves as a trunk lid formed by the walls of millimeter tin, wrapped around the rear strut and welded to the frame. Closed bottom wall sloping tin bottom. The back of the trunk from the inside is reinforced with triangular plates with gussets welded to the frame on the left and right. Scarves are one horizontal axle with a diameter of 10 mm intended for shock towers and outer trunk.


Common mini bike

General view of mini-bike:

1 – tail lining; 2 front fork; 3 – steering bushing frame; 4 – front wing; 5 – pendulum-plug; 6 – absorber; 7 – brace of the outer trunk; 8 – pin shock absorber, and the outer trunk; 9 – folding seat

Bottom frame is welded to another bushing foot pegs, brake lever (to the Col) and of a pendulum (to the rear strut). The first two of pipes with a diameter of 25 mm particular complexity is no different. That’s just in the sleeve of the brake lever drilled blind hole, which is inserted into the end of the brake springs (at the other end on the lever).

Sleeve pendulum intricate. It is asymmetric relative to the strut, has a lug with a thread to screw the tension of the brake cable and it planted two bronze sliding bearing to the axis of the pendulous fork. The bearings are installed in place after welding and to ensure the alignment of their holes the reamed. The fork is symmetrical relative to the longitudinal axis. It consists of loops, side pipes with a diameter of 20 mm, lugs and spacers with a diameter of 15 mm. the Front ends of the side tubes are curved, the back flattened, and all are welded to the loops and the eyelets. In the last drilled hole with a diameter of 10 mm, where the axle welded to absorber rods and struts of the outer trunk.


The pendulum fork


The pendulum fork

Pendulum fork:

1 – loop; 2,3 – holes for mounting wing; 4 – spacer; 5 – lateral pipe; 6 – axle shock absorber and strut of the outer trunk; 7 – eye

The rear wing is bolted to the strut (it has two holes with a diameter of 6.2 mm) to the struts of the trunk.

Front fork consists of three pipes connected with the holders. Two of them are cylinders of shock absorbers. Bottom they pressed nylon bushing, and the top is welded a stub of 3 mm thickness with holes for special bolts with a spiral groove.

The cylinders are tightly welded to the lower holder, and the steering axis. Axle to put on the rings and bearings off the bike, steering bushing frame mini bike with bike same bearing cups and the top nut and the holder. All of this is pulled together by another nut and lock nut.

Then set in place specalty having a spiral groove in which is screwed amortization spring. Recorded at spinboldak, they are rolled also in the depreciation of stocks (from a motorbike). Stocks here shortened by 110 mm and flattened to form lugs mounting the wheels. In addition, the front fork is welded two eyelets for lights (from “Verkhovyna”) and two bracket wings. The wheel is mounted on a fork with plates with four M6 bolts.




1 – steering bushing; 2 – beam; 3 – the inner frame of the trunk; 4 – folding seat base; 5 – hinge; 6 – kerchief; 7 – axle the shock absorber and the outer trunk; 8 – the bottom of the inner boot; 9 – wall; 10, 11 – detail of back brace; 12 – the pendulous fork sleeve; 13 – sleeve brake lever; 14 – bushing rear; 15-jumper; 16,17-parts front brace; 18-bronze bearing (2 pieces)

Front fork

Front fork:

1 suspension rod (2 PCs); 2 – cylinder of the shock absorber (2 PCs); 3 – bottom mount; 4 – ear mount lights (2 pieces); 5 – upper holder; 6 – starbolt M10; 7 – lock nut M26; 8, 9 – nut M26; 10 – steering axle; 11 – bracket mounting wing (2); 12 – nylon bushing; 13 – the plug; 14 – sinking spring


The details of the front wheel

Details front wheel:

1 – half of the disc; 2 – bearing cap (2); 3 – hub; 4 – ring; 5 – axis; 6 – a nut of an axis (2); 7 – Bush axis


Details of the rear wheel


Details of the rear wheel

Details of the rear wheel:

1,2 – half of the disc; 3 – hub; 4 – ring; 5 – bearing cap (2); 6 – bushing axis; 7 – a steel liner-ring (in the left half of the disk); 8 – sprocket driven; 9 – axis


Now about the wheels. Both of them, as already mentioned, from the map. So we had to develop our own design as discs, hubs and axles. All these items are machined from duralumin alloy D16T and article 45.

Rims demountable, consist of two halves, one of which has a hole under the valve chamber. The ribs of the hubs of the wheels are attached with bolts and rings, repeating the dimensions of the ribs. Inside of the hubs are pressed steel bushing with the axes of the wheels and bearings. The latter are placed on the dural M3 screws bearing cover.

Sprocket driven also homemade, made of article 45 with the teeth under the broad chain with a pitch of 12.7 mm.
