Default Interesting Find

Hey Folks!
While cruising some Back roads the other day I happened upon an old english 3 speed touring bike with an old friction drive engine on the front put out for trash,I immediatley cruised home and got the car so I could throw it in the trunk.
She looks as if someone simply got bored and left her in the back of the barn for 30 or so years.
It will need some Love but it was too cool not to Grab!!! The engine is called a "Bike Bug" if anyone has any info on that I would be interested,I pulled the plug and the Piston looks clean,I dont see a sign of any leaks,I just may be able to make her go again,Anyone have any experience with the "Bike Bug"?
Its often easier to get forgiveness than permission!!....Rob in CT
The First Harleys had pedals!!
