Motor and sprocket are on!

After many unsuccessful attempts of getting the sprocket and bike chain on, I finally have them on and working as a unit! I used self-tapping screws to attach sprocket to the back wheel’s hub. I was struggling with the alignment of the motor’s sprocket and the bike wheel’s sprocket. I thought because one of the chain’s links was not in the best condition, the chain was the problem. That was not the case. Once I had the motor’s sprocket and bike wheel’s sprocket aligned, it worked! I also have to mention that I needed to use the holes provided on the MY1016 motor in order to attach to a piece of wood. I drilled holes towards the center of the “hangers” and was using that hole, and the force of the spin was throwing the chain off the sprockets.

Below are pics of the attachment:

There’s also a video showing it in action!
