Default Re: coaster brakes on Hawthorne ok for motorbike?

My Hawthorn has a coaster brake too. It will let the bike coast without the pedals turning.
The drive sprocket is attached to the left side of the rear wheel with a rag joint.
I will add that you do not want to rely on a coaster brake only. I recommend adding a hand brake to the front wheel. At least a standard caliper with Koolstop Salmon brake pads.
