    My 1982 Sachs prima G3

    505/1d engine w/ around 800 miles.

    When I bought it:

    I'm adding this to the handlebars for my Garmin Streetpilot:

    this should be fun and a tad bit more reliable than my motorized bike.

    I don't recognize that make and model at all.

    But it does look like a cool little machine. I could enjoy riding that.

    Have fun

    yup just pedal, pull in the decompression handle and it fires right up. I wouldn't want to pedal it very far, but you can. it's easier to pedal in an almost standing position, it's not quite big enough (for me) to comfortably pedal it like a regular bicycle.
