Default Re: Diesel Engine?

I just got another quote, from a different factory rep in China. Here it is.

Thanks for your inquiry about our products, I'm Emily from Chongqing Royway Machinery Co, Ltd.
According to your request, here is the quotation for you.
Engine model:168F diesel engine(3.5HP)
Engine quotation: FOB Chongqing USD 143/set(recoil start)-for 1 set
FOB Chongqing USD 193/set(electric start)-for 1 set
(It is available to used for bicycles)
MOQ: 1 set
Delivery Date: within 15 days after receiving your payment comfirmation.
Payment Terms: Bank, T/T, Western Union, Paypal, Credit Card, etc. it depends on you.

Looking forward to your reply.

So $336 for a diesel air-cooled engine. So the second question is how to power a bike with it. And now that I think of it why not a "tag-a-long pusher"? What are the downsides to that?
