Yes, this is a splendid example of a motorized bicycle. The speed and mpg are typical. I put a motor kit on a Huffy 3 spd with a motorcycle windshield. I could cruise at 25 mph. It's still in the cellar.

Since many state laws ban motorized bicycles we don't see many in use. There was a big push in the 1980's for motorized bike kits after the oil embargo. Electric bikes are catching on. My rig is a direct friction drive with no clutch. Every bike could benefit from a fairing system.

I don't think it's so much a ban, as they need to conform to cc and HP and top speed limitations.

I got a Bike Bug in '80 or thereabouts. Still have it.

Needs a fuel pump diaphragm.

Wow, that's rare.

Not about the diaphragm, that's to be expected on a 30+ y.o. engine. But I would imagine all the old Bike Bugs have been melted down into Hyundais by now. A step backward in my opinion.
