Hello from WSH

Hi all. I'm the chopper shop coordinator at www.workshophouston.org which is a non-profit after school program for kids aged 12-17 located in the 3rd Ward. In the Chopper Shop program, the kids learn to design and fabricate their own bicycles, focusing on math and engineering skills to build unique bikes.

Three of my advanced students are planning to build a motorized bike, and I'd like to use a wide motorcycle rear wheel to give it a real chopper look. I've seen some pictures of wheels online, and they seem like it should be an uncomplicated task, but I know nothing about motorcycle stuff. It appears I could just swap out the bicycle sprocket for the motorcycle sprocket, but I don't know for sure. Is it this easy? Easiness scares me

Also, since we're a non-profit, finding a cheap wheel or a place that might donate one to us would be very valuable. Anyone have any leads on that front?
Thanks in advance
