I hope to see more motored bikes in NZ; we are all suffering from oil prices and the North Island climate is warmer than a good many places. Thames, where I live is on the edge of the Plains (Sianelle's address) so we may, metaphorically, bump into each other one day...........Sarum
Im familiar with the cyclaid - just didnt remember the name of the company without the model name. The Golden Eagle I have is the same idea as the cyclaid but updated. They do a 26,32,40 two stroke range with 26-32cc four strokes as well.

If you see a villiers powered trike buzzing in your direction there is a fair chance that is sianelle
