Re: Introduction time.
This bike has such a great rusty patina going that I feel it would be a shame to ruin that with a good paint job. If I had it to do over again though (like say witha sachs 100cc gearboxless engine), I would run the power from the crank to a jackshaft right about where my friction wheel is, then to the same large pulley as on the whizzer. The clutch would be a lever acting on the first belt with a pully to tighten. Needless to say it would painted flawlessly, everything else would be nickel plated, brass or copper, white tires, wooden fenders...
