Posted by: jeff TITLE: MOTORIZED BICYCLES: Evans Power Cycle
hi - I~m helping a friends family settle his estate. He has a restored Evan~s power cycle that is beautiful. I need help with assigning a value. What is it worth? Thanks in advance. I will try to post a picture later this week.

I~m currently in possesion of a Evans power cycle in an attempt to get it running.The original cork float has taken a beating for the fact that the owner left fuel in the bowl,
Ive attempted to clean it up and coat it with a fuel proof epoxy with not such good results.My second option was to make a float out of brass,keeping it~s weight and bouyancy the same as the cork but I~m still having a hell of a time getting it running.Ive gone through all the steps to set up the timing and spark for I have original literature to guide me through the process,but still,no go.
It does kick,,smoke and act as if it wants to get up n run but just wont keep running.
I wonder if anyone here might hava a few suggestions,parts perhaps?,,maybe a float?,any sort of shop manual if there ever was one?,maybe even specs on the float itself?
Also,I wonder if there is a site of some sort or a registry that pertains to these bikes specifically?
Any and all replys would be greatly appreciated,
Thanx in advance,

I have some parts I believe are from my late father in law~s Evans ( we sold the partially restored bike about 3 years ago)
I still have the original Operation, Care & Maintenance guide for the Model "G" and what I think are some motor parts and control wiring. Email me if interested and I will take pictures

If you send me a few pictures I could help you establish a reasonable value. I own a few and have a far amount of related literature. I too might be interested in buying it myself.
