This bike has a 2 stroke engine mounted on sprung brackets, attached to the saddle tube, and drives down onto the rear wheel by a large rubber Vee belt.
There is no clutch of any kind, so when the engine turns, the bike moves, and visa versa. It is impossible to stop without stalling the engine. Riding this in traffic is matter of continually stalling and re-starting the engine.....

I have scanned and copied almost everything I have about the Cyclaid.
