    i cannot begin to tell you all how pleased i am with the golden eagle robin subaru engine & drive train! the shipping was absolutely impecable, & the detailed instruction book was great, but ya really didnt need it because its so simple to install. this system is so smooth, quiet,greaseless & trouble free it blows me away. an easy 28 -30 right out of the box pullin 2 on our tandem! today i filled up at the pump for 55 cents the looks i got were pricelss!! oh yes totally american kit. if its the last thing ya do in life as motored biker please ride a golden eagle, you wont be disapointed! & no im not a vendor!! just a very pleased customer!!:grin::grin::grin:

    _Wavy I have to also agree. While on vacaton last week I put mine to the test. I went on a 110 mile round trip @ 20 mph (6 hrs) without shutting the engine down. I refueled (every 20 miles carrying extra fuel) in only 20 seconds with the engine running. Ive heard rumors that these RS engines will run all day long, so I took it to the test. Ive heard to only run 4 strokes for a few hrs, but then it would'nt be a test.
    _On my return my HT looked sad. So I took it out on a 15 min run. My rear end could'nt take another minute. If doing a long trip again, I definetly would have a large fuel tank because this engine CAN run all day long.... O' also a big a$$ seat.

    Wavy, we have a tandem in the garage and you have me thinking. What did you do about the throttle cable and the kill switch cable? For my wife and daughter I am thinking eho25 (but not in the immediate future).

    astring,

    if you browse the gebe website for accessories at the very bottom of the engine page, you will find they have extra long throttle cables just for tandems, the kill switch is an easy mod. just snap in an extra length of wire at the connection that is already prewired to the engine. problem solved.

    Eho 35 Robin is great

    I have a 35cc Robin belt drive on a 7 speed Pantera Beach Cruiser, that is wonderfull. It cruises at 25 mph with the throttle backed off. Quiet running with good performance. Since I was new to motor bicycle set ups, I thought their price on the kit was too high. But after recieving it and riding it, it is worth every penny for it.

    I agree, once you ride it is clear why it cost more than those chain drives....and there is absolutely no comparison with friction drives.

    How well does that engine push your tandem uphill? Do you have to pedal at all?

    ok gang hers the dealeo!! this thing rocks, yes i have to pedal assist with the tandem 2 up, but with 7 gears its opens up a whole new realm in hill climbing, & pedal assisting up to 30+ mph is fast & furious. when im by myself das limo flies! i put on probly 100 miles today & is my behind sore, switched seats when i got home! this is "the" engine & kit that all other sellers will be envious of. the extra expence is well worth every penny! friction drives ect fail in comparision. epa compliant & american assembled!i had people actually fly ahead of me to flag me down to try & buy the bike, i said no but well build ya one!!! golden eagle rocks!
