Default Re: Mb's for disaster recovery

After giving this idea some thought, I think that keeping it as simple as possible would be best and lend itself to be more reliable/ utilitarian.
Use a 4-stroke engine. Gas is easier to get than pre-mix, and simpler too as there is no mixing what so ever.
For this idea I am stuck on the GEBE drive system. It will fit on nearly any bike with 24" wheels or larger, there is no chain to break or maintain, it can be installed very quickly to another bike of necessary. The cost is somewhat prohibitive, but we are talking about potentially saving lives here. Cannot put a cost on that!
