1999 Lever Drive Bike

A bike designed for a person that could not be pedal a standard bike.

A stock frame is modified to take on a second BB. See below for more details.

Factory mounted standard

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
A bottom bracket was cut out and placed on to the frame to allow the lever drive assembly to be mounted. A spring is mounted on the upper section to help the arm return to the starting postion.

3 speed hub. The right hand side used a chain attachment point that allows the modified chain to be pulled when the left pedal assembly is pushed down. A door return cylinder is used to pull the chain back to it's original postion so the cycle of the chain pull be reset.

A thumb shifter to shift the 3 speed chain shifter.

Factory standard was replaced by a BMX design.

Side pull

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
26" by 1 3/8th"

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
26" by 1 3/8th"

More Info:
The owner of the bike had an injury that affected there ability to pedal bike so I modified the owners bike to allow the continued use. It worked well for me with some limitations. The weak spot on the bike was foot support design. I did not really hear any feedback on this project after returning it to the owner.
