Default Re: Hello from ROMANIA! :-)

Engine?Not yet! I did a lot of "research" to learn more about how you can use at the best a 49cc engine , but still undecided...
My greatest "pain in the *ss" is the chain transmision and the maintenance that has to be done for this type of transmission! I would love to own a motorized bicycle that doesn't need maintenance , accept oil changes(motor & gearbox if it would have one), air filter(oil bath , is the best), tires , brakes , and that's about it , that I would "digest" for a motorized bicycle...
I don't ever whant to clean up chains if I would ride a motorized bicycle...
every little part that should be moving and need lubrication SHOULD be protected form the environment and oil bath lubricated! Everything else is "almost" useless...
And I like the STATON , Rohloff hub , or any other "new ideea" for a motorized bicycle! BUT no chains or moving/lubricated part exposed... that's what I have in mind!
A honda CUB 90 would be a good ideea , but it's not a bicycle
P.S. : I forgot to tell you: On a "normal" bicycle I do about 800-1000 km on month (if the weather is fine)... So from a motorized bicycle I really whant RELIABILITY!!! that's why I insisted on enclosed chains for a transmission... just start it in the morning and get off in the evening... repeat this for a month , and you will get sick of chains...
I did...
