    Are you able to ride these type of pushies on the street (when it's not raining) in the yUK?

    Been kind of outlawed here cos they are too noisy and piss everyone off.

    Very illegal unless you have a log book. In this case we are registered as a 1965 NSU. I'm going to ride it once then sell it as a novelty so someone else can piss people off :D

    Street legal under 49cc and muffled in Oregon.

    The ones I have seen are quite when muffled and not so annoying.

    Pedals have to work. Saw step thru scooter that kept pedals in glove box.

    No need for insurance or drivers license.

    They come in handy for those who lost drivers license for over indulging in adult beverages whist driving/riding.

    I repositioned my pedals to point the same direction. Then put stops on so that they could be used as pegs.
    I called it the "New Unipedal Style"

    We used to remove the pedals from mopeds when we were kids and hammer a broom stick in for foot pegs.

    I always just ran pedals, though sometimes had to space them out, bend etc to clear big expansion chambers and or flatslide mikunis and air filters

    A lot of people use the gx160 motor in the motorized bikes, and or the “predator” engine from harbor freight (in the US)

    I think they look quite proper in the bike size wise and I’m sure they’re better quality then the Chinese 2 stroke.

    My Moped (Motobecane Moby) needs a motor.
    I would sure rather have a four stroke than the mosquito fogger...
    When I get to that project I will look into the Predator engine.
    Looks great!

    that predator motor will obliterate the motobecane frame.

    stick to the moby.
