Am very interested in a gasoline motor for bicycles. Please advise of weight, fuel capacity, power, etc. Thanks.

Hi Wayne,

It folds down into the size of a small suitcase, but bigger than a briefcase, and, unfortunatly, it~d still be too big for overhead luggage. I~ve been into bikes for about 50 years and I~ve never run across one of these so I~m not certain this is the kind of thing you~d want to actually use. Look at currently produced fold-up bikes and consider adding a "Chicken-Power" type motor to one. The bikes are available in a variety of places and the motors come up on ebay fairly often at around $100.

Good Luck,

Bob Hall
