Default Re: most compact folding motorised bicycle?

Welcome to the forum. Your bike certainly is different. Can you give some details about what engine, what bike, etc.? What are some of the problems you encountered? Some years ago I fooled around with a Worksman folding bike (bigger than yours) with a Tanaka friction drive engine up front. The motor had been designed for a 26" bike wheel, so the motor went pretty fast spinning that 20" wheel around which of course reduced the overall speed at which I could ride the bike. It was interesting, but not all that practical for me as I didn't really have need for a folding bicycle. Are there special restrictions in Wales regarding motorized bicycles? Is yours for fun or for basic transportation?
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
