Our Heritage #2
Well this bike is another replica using an original engine. It's a 1920 Evans Power Cycle. In the teens it was sold as a bicycle engine kit called"Cyclemotor" later was sold as a light weight motorcycle.I was given the engine kind of as a joke because it was in such bad shape. he thought of it more as a door stop. It took me a year just to get it apart. for its day it's a very tiny two stroke about 100cc I think rated at 1/2 horse. and it feels like 1/2 horse too. on level ground it might get up to 20 or 25. speed is best regulated by changing the spark advance. direct drive, no clutch. Pedal it to start the engine, and pull the compression release to stop.

That is such a cool bike....it gives me inspiration to eventually own a bike like that. Maybe not the motor, but at least the frame and everything else with my existng motor mounted on it.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Barret, Yes, I think this 1920's design is perfect for the Chinese engines. ...........Bob
