I was having trouble visualizing how you'd pedal start a China Girl with a centrifugal clutch. I know not all centrifugal clutches are created equal. So this only applies to this specific type with the 5 one-way bearings that grip and spin the clutch bell to allow for this starting action that does not require the pull start.

I know I've covered this before, basically when you get the rear wheel moving it starts spinning the clutch, when you drop the clutch it spins the large gear and that turns the small gear which is part of the auto clutch bell, inside the bell gear are the one way bearings that when rotated counter clockwise by the bell they lock up on the crankshaft extension sleeve, that turns the engine over and starts it.

Nice art. I understood the concept before I had it, just needed it in front of me to really cement the idea.
