I'm thinking that a simple centrifical clutch set-up like on a mini-bike would both keep the cost and the WEIGHT down a little bit.

The motor is already much heavier than a china girl-
and needs a weighty platform of $30 +

Much more weight would force me, at least, to use heavier wheels- so the total weight might be a third again as heavy

It might be nice and quiet and smooth running- but it starts to change my whole approach-
but I wouldn't mind trying a 4 cycle- except for the cost.
ummmm with a tach
When in doubt grind it out ...
