    Mating VW trans to bike motor
    #1
    Default
    Has anyone ever adapted a vw trans to a bike motor on here? I have seen a few street bugs with them. It sounds like it could be a cool cheaper option to get reverse and 24 gears. It would rob some horsepower but from what I have seen guys break the clutch plates apart and take the center splined section to put bolts through them to make a spline adapter. Im sure it would be harder on the bike trans but could get CVT with no sprocket to eat up all the uptravel. I ask because I have a 2 seat old school highjumper frame sand rail I have been taking that to the desert lately being a 2 seater and can't leave anything alone. My car is slow to sell and built with vw parts so im starting to consider robbing all the parts off of it

    thoughts?

    It has been done with varying results. A T1 trans will not hold up to a bike motor. An 091 will live for a little while. If you plan on using reverse, hunt for a 094.

    Most of the street bugs I have seen with bike motors have used Harley motors......so no transmission......but a big V-twin would be fun in a buggy!
