I'm looking for a replacement drive belt for my Golden Eagle bike engine (bikeengines.com). The company seems like it is out of business. Can anyone confirm this? Also, does anyone have a link to a compatible replacement belt?

Wow, that sucks. Those guys were awesome. I wonder if there are cad drawing for the drive ring. That seems like the most unique part of the kit.

I ended up finding the belt (minus the kevlar that GEBE had built custom) here:

Anyone have any information on Golden Eagle's status?
Thank you for that link. I just ordered a spare belt. I've had my GEBE since 2011. Had no trouble until this spring. My grand kids took it out of winter storage and next thing I know it has three broken spokes and the rear wheel is spinning crooked. I got that fixed but then the Tanaka 32cc PureFire motor is hard starting, won't idle. FOUND IT! Broken fuel line was leaking and then finally broke. Easy fix... All kinds of YouTube videos on replacing fuel line in Tanaka/Echo weed whips.

SO... We're not out in the cold. We have a source for belts and our motors are serviceable everywhere. RIP GEBE Company and thanks for my GEBE.
