K&S Bike Machine

I stumbled on to your web site last night. I'm glad I've found other people with bike motors. Now if parts are available is probably another story. I am in the prosess of reclaiming my old bike motor from the person I sold it to 6 years ago or so but I know it will be missing a few parts. It would be nice to be able to purchase them instead of having to fabricate them. Have you ever heard of the KawasakiTD48? 48cc Friction drive wheel centrifugal clutch and lever engadgement. A friend of mine has a K&S but the pull starter is a real pain.

These motors ran up and down the street every day every minute they could be. It would be the best to get em going again.

Well any info would be appreciated Thanks.

Power Cruiser

Hi,
My name is David and I am 12 years old and I have some questions about a certain bicycle motor kit. I am intrested in the Power Cruiser brand. I was wondering, if it wasn't to much trouble, to tell me more about it and possibly tell what I need to look for in a kit. If you could I would be delighted.

Sincerely,
David, a fan of your web site

Bike Bug

In 1980 or 1981 I purchased a bicycle engine (two stroke) called the "Bike Bug". This was made by the same company that made the "Aqua Bug" lightweight outboard motor for boats. I have not used the bike engine in many years, and fear the company is out of business as I tried to contact them and the phone number no longer worked. It was fun, but could not pull you up a hill by itself. Peddling was required on the steep hills, but it made them tolearble. On flat land, I could pedal faster without the engine though. My problem is that the rubber roller that drove the front tire wore the front tire and themselves out rather rapidly. I need a new rubber roller for this engine.

First off I must say what a great job you have done on your web-page, nice work.

Last known: 100 Merrick Road Rockville Centre, N.Y. 11570 Phone 516-536-8217. I'm not sure of the date of the engine approximately 15-20 years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!;

Hi. I am a 66 year old kid playing with mopeds (2) and have a Bike Bug, made by Aqua Bug Int. that was given to me several years ago, It's about 20 years old and in excelant condition, and trying to get it going. The only part that needs replacing (?) is the roller. Do you have any information on this engine ? parts, or anything?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
