Making a monotrack bike
10 September, 2019 | Videos
Starting this project, numbered 0100, we knew that it had to be something special in order to thank our viewers for their loyalty. Having this thought in our head, we, therefore, decided to make a motorized vehicle. We called it ‘monotrack bike’ as it has only one crawler that it uses it to move. To make this crawler, we took a car tyre, from which we removed its two sides to make it softer and easier to take the shape that we want. Then, using an aluminium, diving bottle, we made the rims, which transmits the motion of the machine to the crawler.
Firstly, we used a machine by a 100cc 2 stroke scooter. The crawler takes its shape and spins in 5 additional metallic rollers that we created and are made of a metallic tube 80mm wide. Three of the five rollers are located at the frontal part of the bike and are connected to the machine with a variable connection so that the crawler will be able to be set along it. In this way, we can control its stretching. The other two rollers are located at the back side of the crawler and through a scissor are connected with the frontal part of the bike, where the three metallic rollers are. The scissor is supported by three springs which help the absorption of the noise of vibration.
This construction functions similarly like the monowheel that we created in another video. However, instead of being inside the wheel, you are sat on an elastic crawler.
Summing up, while getting into the process to start this particular project, we knew that despite the constructional functions, there would also be problems turning the wheel during its driving. However, the vehicle was moving with great facility even better than we expected. It also gives us a very pleasant feeling during its driving as the driver feels like he drives a motorbike on one wheel. Finally, we are very glad that such a unique construction is included in our collection.
