Yeah, I did notice that. Either there wasnt enough space for a gearbox or the engine had enough torque without needing one. I would bet on a mixture of the two because it would be a slow running long stroke engine back then...

I would also wonder how it would handle because of the gyroscopic nature of the running engine - im just not sure whether it would make it less or more stable than a normal bike
