I have always wondered how many rear tyres you would get through in a year. Great for rallys but I would imagine not too good for todays traffic and certainiy awful for the enviroment. Velo Solex are popular in Denmark. Where the motor is on the front wheel.

Does it need to be registered, taxed & insured and do need an appropriate driving licence?
You certainly would in the UK. :scratch:
Because I like keeping things legal I enquired but the reply I got was you cannot as its seen as a bicycle,I live next to a police station they had a laugh and left me to it. Its an easy fix to see a policeman and just pull the decompression lever which kills the engine and just pedal because then your only transporting a motor effectivly

Can't beat an old moped. An 18 stone biker friend of mine turned up to the Wednesday night charity run on a Raleigh runabout one evening. They have a "nobody gets left behind" policy like the ctc, it was hilarious
I did a speed run lastnight I think the little carburatter needs a clean out the bike tappd out at 38.9 kilometres an hour surely it can do ten more ks if I give it a tune up
