Johan posted the following comment on HELLO PETER: I enquired about a product and was surprised to get a response in a couple of minutes Ecotrax, as one is more often than not lucky to get any response whatsoever from businesses nowadays. Then I ordered from Ecotrax, and was kept up to speed with every single detail of my order. Delivery was arranged and made to the minute by Ecotrax. A small defect was discovered in the equipment and reported via e-mail to Hilton of Ecotrax. Again, within minutes, he responded and promised to send a replacement part within maximum 2 working days. Mere hours later, however, he phoned (although I could not take the call and realised only later it was him when I compared the number to that of a sms I received) and then sent an sms saying that the part had been obtained and will be sent to me. Within 2 hours later I got another e-mail from Ecotrax with the tracking number of the parcel and also a projected time of delivery. Thank You Ecotrax and Hilton for outstanding customer care and service. One does not easily come across this exceptional level of customer service. it makes one feel special and certainly guarantees a succesful future for Ecotrax.

1905 indian replica bike

indian motorized bike replica cradock south africa

 

1905 Indian replica

The bike rides very well, and the engine starts with no great pedalling effort. It has ample power too, and can go up even the steepest Cradock hills without help. The booklet says that it will have a lot more power after its 500 km run-in period. One just has to remember to pull the clutch in at every stop street, and to pedal away till a few km per hour, then release the clutch again. Eben has made some short movie clips of me careering up and down the road outside his house, much to the amusement of onlookers.

I have modified the chain tensioner to a spring tensioner and this has improved the actions tremendously and should help with the chain stretch problem and the loose chain noise and backlash.

As you can see I have fitted a swivel bush in the top of the original slide, this required filing out the top of the slot to fit the bush.

The swivel arm is 5mm plate and the spring I purchased at a local car spares shop.

I manufactured the spring bracket on the rear fork from 3mm plate and drilled it through into the frame to insert a self tapping screw, this stops the bracket from slipping down the frame.

The chain guard needed a little tweeking but fits well.

Dave, Sedgefield

Can you maybe put my bike on the website? You know its nice to show off!

Hello,

Just some news of my Indian Replica Ecotrax bike. It's still running brilliantly by the way, and the engine is fully run in.

Firstly, a reporter of the Burger (by far largest Afrikaans newspaper in the Western and Eastern Cape) heard about my Indian replica bike and came to see it and had a short interview with me.

Then about 2 weeks ago a local reporter for the central Karoo Region newspaper Midland News saw me on the bike, and made an appointment to do an article and photos of it. This article appeared in last week's Midland News.

I think the main attraction at this stage on my "silly" bike is the baboon skull at the front, which opens its mouth and its eyes pop out whenever ones blows the hooter! It has horns from an Nguni cow and the neck vertebrae are made up from a Tsessebe (Red Hartebeest) backbone. It took me many evenings to get all the mechanics right so that the eyes and mouth co-ordinate their movement, but it was well worth the effort. I have also fitted some rat traps with fake dead rats, a spare headlamp (ie a candle!) and other silly oddments since I last contacted you.

By the way, I have had some enquiries from people regarding the Ecotrax engine kits after the recent newspaper articles, and I have given them your details. I think the high petrol price has a lot to do with the recent interest in the engine kit.

Hi , I am sending you some more photos of my bike now with the expansion chamber mufflers fitted as well as a Walbro carb. I also fitted a chain tentioner to the shift kit so i don't have to adjust it all the time. The results of the pipe and the Walbro carb was that i gained lots of torque. I can run much higher gears now even going uphill. No high reving of the motor is necessary. And that keeps the motor super smooth in terms of vibrations – Marius, Kempton Park

board track racer replica

 

2 amazing board track racer replica's built by Dave Mariner and his son Dylan.

They were built from chopped Qhubeka bike frames.

As agreed: the end result. Mods:
Made my own engine mounting & chain tensioner, spring loaded helps alot.
Exhaust is from an old 50cc which had to be heat bent & adjusted to fit the engine & frame.
Took 3 months to finish to the last detail but was worth it. Had it going for a week & it got stolen... Took a little bit of a reward ($) to get the police to get it back. Finally got it back with a few scrapes & dents but still running good & the motor is run in at last...
Dad (Gert) helped a lot, without him the mods & ideas might not have been possible.

Matt, Secunda

Hardy Bike & Saddle – Cape Town

I have included the first bike I built. This bike was a problem in that it is a cheap China bike purchased from a local China shop with strange size frame and thin material. Be this as it may I modified the lower mounting, made the brakes 60% rear 40% front on one lever, made another chain guide as the standard one would not fit the frame (frame very small diameter pipe). The customer then fitted lights, carrier, saddle bags, chrome mud guards etc. Bike runs well, customer calls it a sport touring bike. Les – George
