I see all manner of strange bikes here, but one thing I haven't yet seen is belt drive bikes. Be it your own or someone else's, I wanna see what ya got.

Wouldn't mind seeing some of them too!
Was thinking about a gilmer belt drive from an old timing belt on the wife's camry for the muscle bike build off, but turns out I threw away the water pump pulley and didn't have the other pulley I would need anyway... :|

Still going to keep my eye out, might use the idea somewhere yet... :wink:

I've been thinking of using a crank pulley and generator pulley from an aircooled vw. Then connect them with an emergency belt so you can cut it to length and use the metal connector plate provided. Then it can go around the frame like a normal chain as well.
