    A good friend just returned from a trip to China, he's been several times and have traveled widely there setting up an academic exchange program.
    He says you'll see almost no HT type engines on bikes there, all gone electric.

    I think that HT's are pretty much banned in major city areas, and they are increasing regulation on e-bikes too because of "battery pollution". Seems that they don't have a very good lead recycling program lke we do here in the US, and lead is getting into their water supply. We recycle approx 97% of all lead that goes into lead acid batteries. I think China is only at around 50%. Their government would rather have them pedalling, rather than motoring around.

    Nothing funny about it! That's what our Garbage collector's will be using in a few short years if we keep voting Democrat and Republican!
