Hey guys, I just had one of my mental flashes...my daughter used to call it "imaginating".

How about for the gravity type clutch, you integrate a small "lift strut" from a car hatchback, or a storm door closer?

That way you could "drop the clutch" then put both hands on the bars as the clutch slowly, gently engages.

E-Z take off from a stand still.

It would have to be short. even on a 26" from axle to engine frame might be 12 inches or so. Of course that is the closed distance. Eight inches closed would be better.

If we are going to do that lets go with auto window motor, lol
