hey Dark Knight Kid, we'd love to see your work.  Do us a favor tho, start you a fresh thread somewhere, perhaps the "other" builds and post away.  

A good description of anything you might have did differently from the original would be awesome too  

We LOVE pictures around here, especially Jack.

I was serching around in the net too.
but I found nothing.
And then, I had a same idea as the mechanic do.
"What kind of the engine suppose to be install in very very tiny body, and must be drive a very very heavy big wheel."

The possible answer is "the smaller light weight, hi-torque more than rev, single cylinder engine"

And the result is "motocross engine"

and I found this

Honda - CRF450R

Batmobile

Batmobile

See. Same look, same part.

but I'm not sure what's year of the engine in original bat-pod.

That all I know.

from what i've read, the same engine is available in the ATV's too.  Some had electric starts, some had kick starts, depending on application.

Hi im new on here.

I am into kit car builds and have been thinking about the batpod build for a while. I studied the rear drive & have been trying to work out how to improve the steering mechanism.

The engine shown above is the same one I concluded was being used. The drive is via a custom made gearbox going through a set of gears (you can see the rmultiple rounded edge of the gearbox showing the outline of the gears) The tube running across infront of the rear wheel has a shaft inside. The tube attached to the rear wheel and the end plate is adjustable with an offset bearing which can be rotated to adjust the tension of the chain. The chain runs through the larger fore/aft tube to the rear wheel and returns through the smaller one. The whole rear end is solid fixed hardtail with the front providing the suspension.

The steering is the bit that posed the most problem for me. I wanted the bike to be a usable ridable bike & the method of steering was just not going to provide that. The pivot is under the bike & the bars and arm supports are solidly fixed and move as a whole single unit. This means the rider has to pivot the whole lot via his shoulders, which would be difficult enough, but with a front tyre that size it will be a nightmare. I have been trying to come up with a design where the bars move like a normal bike and the joints down to the underside of the bike are not rigid.

The tyres themselves caused a few probs, the edges have obviously been shaved to create the curvature needed to lean the bike, but since I wanted to actually use it & I know how odd a bike feels when it has a flatted centre of the tyre, I neede to look for something different. Options so far are a european truck tyre which has almost the same dimensions but a far deeper tread which will allow me to curve the tyre a bit more by removing tread from the edges, but still be road legal. Also the Hoosiers are not road legal and would never pass our UK MOT. Alternative is the 360 vee rubber tyre, but this is too small in diameter and wouldnt really look right.

Sorry for the long post, im just impressed I have found others thinking along the same lines as me about building the bike. I ideally want to be able to use shaggy's cad drawings as these will give the project a boost & im happy to share all the info and things I have researched.

Just for info I am a qualified Aeronautical engineer so have a reasonable technical background.

Cheers

Drew
