In this video I demonstrate how to build a bicycle generator from start to finish. I go step by step through the process of building the project from the ground up. I really enjoyed this project and I hope it inspires you to build one also. It is a great prep to have and will keep your battery bank charged up as long as you do your part pedaling the unit. Below is the parts and tools list (As complete as possible). I hope this video is a blessing to you.
Here is a link to the update on the bicycle generator so that the unit can be made portable to transport:

TOOLS LIST:
Safety Glasses
Tape Measure
Work gloves (For hand safety when grinding and cutting the angle iron and metal mounting)
angle grinder or cutoff grinder
multimeter or dc meter
Adjustable wrench, drill, wire strippers
(vice grips only if you have problems with mounting on bike)
String or seamstress tape to measure for belt on wheel and motor.
PARTS LIST:
Bike
DC Voltmeter with no external power supply needed (here is the link to the one I am going to buy or similar)

Electric tape and zip ties
Alligator clips (can be purchased at harbor freight tools)
14 gauge wire about 20 foot should do it I think.
blocking diode for hot side of wire going to battery bank (link below on ebay)

no cratch floor sticky pads for furniture(so that the metal frame will not scratch the floor)
3/4 wire loom about 5 to 6 feet of it for wire protection
1/4 wire loom about 5 to 6 feet of it to protect wire leads going to voltmeter
About 14 feet of angle iron or shelving bracket iron for frame build
the belt I used for my mount and motor was a Gates belt part#K040745
Motor was a ICON part#f-174504
I believe that is all the parts needed and if you have any questions just ask or email me at 7trumpetsprepper@gmail.com
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE VIDEO
Frame Notes:
You can use angle iron or shelving brackets for the structure support on the build.
It is easier to use shelving brackets because the holes are pre drilled and easy to line up for 1/4 bolts and fasteners.
The width of the triangle that I ended up with at the bottom was 15 wide.
over all the triangle is 15 to 16 inches tall and 15 wide so that the bike is elevated and has plenty of clearance.
Bolt mounts and inner spacing for bike suspension notes:
The inner spacing I made on the bike was 15 inches that gave a gap of 1 inch space that I could stretch or move the metal to slide the bike in the frame. If you have a wider bike I would add enough space for you to have a 1 inch gap on each side for maintenance.
