Well, im embarking on a quest to mate a jonsored 2171 70cc turbo chainsaw toa moped frame and have it run correctly...i was thinking of using the existing chainsaw clutch since it has pretty high torque and grabbing power but im stuck on how im going to gear this beast...sould i use a variator? I have a spare 77 vespa ciao standard rear with a functioning variatoir or should i not use a tranny and just use a single speed with sprokets? how does this all work... i was hoping if mabye when im free i could go take a look at mopedlar's collection or bassman's so i could figure this out....any suggestions? btw the full throttle max RPM of the engine in that saw is around 14k...it makes 5.3 HP at around 13.5 lbs w/o guide bar and chain
also if you guys have other saw/engine suggestions please hit me up...PS im probably going to find a willing retailer and trade them a laptop for the saw.
