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) LOL

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?
Did Emily specify if that diesel motor is EPA approved for the USA?

I like her comment.

Tandem friction drive and now a "tag-a-long pusher"????

Most builders want their motor in the frame like a motorcycle.
