I remember them but haven't thought of them for a long time. I've looked at the photos and I'm trying to see how they drive. Biknut said they are "direct drive" do you mean friction drive? I don't see a chain or a driveshaft but I see something that looks like a friction roller just ahead of the rear tire.
They sort of remind me of the 125cc Harley Hummer. Now that's a bike I'd like to find and restore but the ones I've found are priced like gold, even the rust buckets.

Edit: Nevermind...I just found the big pully on the rear wheel, left side. So they were belt drive.
My eyes are tired...been Christmas shopping with the wife all day...sorry.
