Default Re: hello from Tyler TX

Hello. I used to drive trucks and can see why a bike, especially a small motorized bike, could make things way easier when you're stationed or broke down.

Try this:
(inexpensive folding bicycle)

And this:
Dax Friction Drive kit.

Also, there is Staton Inc (not quite the same design, but also a heavy duty friction drive, and US made. )

You should be able to get it all together for $600.

Skip the chinese in-frame engines and "motorcycle" looking stuff if you want to haul it along on a truck. Save the sweet starting weeder engine for your yard.

Dax Friction Drive Fan Club for more info
