Default Re: The moment gas bikes because obsolete

I took my first ride about 60 years ago on a homemade, Briggs washing machine motor powered friction drive. They used a old car generator with the side cut out as a drive roller. Couple years ago i found one and collecting parts to restore it. That hooked me good, and i bought a Factory Monark twin, road it everywhere for a couple years, then cars took over and bought a model A Ford. Then about 3 years ago i had a friction drive engine (got from my son) setting in the shed, thought put it on bike or sell it. That's all it took to get me back into motor bikes again. As far as electric i hate it when the batteries go dead, and have to wait for a charge, would only be out of necessity to have one...........Curt
