We Built the World's First Longitudinal Engine Mini Bike | Budget Big Block Briggs!

Welcome to the Sidewinder mini bike build! We took an 11 horsepower Briggs and Stratton Industrial engine and jammed it in a small mini bike frame. We decided that engine would fit much better if we rotated it 90 degrees counter clockwise in the frame, so that the crankshaft is facing the rear tire. In order to send power to the rear wheel, we used a 90 degree PTO box, aka "Magic Box" as we call it. It's not quite finished, but this budget big block mini bike is turning out awesome!

Thanks for Watching!

    You need a good pipe bender so you can make your own custom frames. You can also make them from larger tubing if you need something stronger.

    OK I don't get it so how come you can just throw any pipe on there as an exhaust but when I was looking for exhaust for my BT200X they literally said if I try to put this exhaust on with the governor removed it'll blow it in two I don't understand motors at all or vehicles but what is why

    Marketing idea for you guys, sell pocket screwdrivers like the one you guys just used in this video with your logo on it and if people spend a certain amount on merch they get a free pocket screwdriver. I would buy at least a few screwdrivers.

The Coleman bt200x is great for trail hopping and stuff, but when they arrived I was surprised by just how big they really were and I was picturing something much smaller. Maybe an old school mini chopper or something.

    "World's first"? You bunch must live in a tiny world. Population 2 or 3? Twist chain/v-belt mini bikes and go carts have been being built by DIY fabricators for only about 50 or 60 years and they didn't need or use expensive and clunky 90 degree drives either.

    Instead of using spray paint to mark engine holes, get yourself a set of various standard grade 8 bolt sizes that fit snugly through all your different engine options. Cut the heads of the bolts off, Chuck 'em up in a drill, spin 'em, and use a grinder to sharpen the ends of the bolts to a fine point. Now you'll have yourself a set of cheap drift punches, that when the correct size is placed through the engine holes and tapped with a hammer, will give you a perfect centered drill starting spot. No paint, or markers needed. I use my home made punches all the time.

    I can’t help but wonder why, if your useing the live axle kit, why not mount the engine the standard way and eliminate the “magic box” as I’m sure there is some power loss with it.. I guess because of the girth of the engine? But just need longer foot pegs lol

    The rapture will happen without a doubt. The rapture will happen much sooner than many believe (less than 10 years according to all the environmental, weather signs , israel timelines etc showing ). It will happen without any warning , not one , in an instant , catching masses of people off guard just like God always does, ie the flood , sodom and gomorrah ~ a rude awakening . No one knows the exact day or hour the rapture will happen is a certainty . THE RAPTURE CAN HAPPEN NOW at ANY TIME make no mistake !! . Please awake to Christ Jesus which is the ONLY hope NOW and dont let yourself find out it IS all true later when its too late and you have been left behind in the most terrible times the earth Has Ever experienced Before and ever will...for anyone who sees this and doesnt know what to do please If you havent given your life and heart to Christ Jesus you will have REAL BIG problems way bigger than any problems you have Ever had If you are left here on earth after the Rapture . After the Rapture The USA , Worldwide , will face More evils , Inner city chaos, firearm wars etc etc ,power and water , food shortages , military invasions,mass executions (yes much blood will be required by antichrist ) etctec than it Has EVER been seen Before and you surely dont want to be Here then . We Have Time NOW to change , please seek Christ Jesus while there is still time to save ! no one knows the day or hour of the rapture ,But the rapture will start out just like any other day .....The Rapture will Take Place In the day In Broad daylight, sunny day , In an Instant FLASH without ANY warning , and there will be peoples Driver Ids, cell phones ,wallets found in various parking lots , Purses bill folds Found at work etc etc with NO explanation , and People VANISHING so No One can refute it has taken place. . romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. rapture ready . com NOW is the time, dont wait until its too late seek Please Christ Jesus NOW. Those not going in the rapture and left behind , who rejected Christ Jesus' Love, and those that are practicing sin will have a big nightmare when left after the rapture example woman dancing in topless bar practicing sin , will NOT go in the rapture when it happens abruptly , and many other examples of willfully practicing sin daily .matthew 25 :1-13 parable of the 10 virgins, 5 were wise 5 were foolish and payed a severe price . Acts 3:19 all unrepented sins19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Please Christ Jesus NOW with your heart while theres still time left !
