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.
They do have belt drive 2door. There's a big pulley on the rear wheel driven by a centrifugal clutch.

They also have a belt driving, I guess a generator.
