    I have a gas assisted bicycle. The guy i bought it off of says he runs straight gas no mix. What type of engine would that be considered? Im also not sure of the cc category? I do not have a license. Live in Illinois. I do know that if i come to a and dont pull the clutch it will die. When i pull the clutch in it revs a little higher and doesnt die. Has any one found out whether a lic is needed or not. It is a bicycle dont think it goes over 25 with skme one weighing 170. I onky weigh 130 so its going to go faster. I just don't need any tickets or need to go to jail. I was told by my buddy. That i should take it to the local police department and have thsm look at it and determine what they would classify it under. Theres no place to put a lic plate theres. It has 2 2 chains and sprockets on both sides. I feel pretty confident that my bike would fall under the ebike laws but not sure. Please, please, please, comment with any knowledge on the situation you have.

    Really no oil mix and it has a manual clutch lever???

    I don't know of any 4 strokes that are like that.

    Sounds like you have a 2 stroke and are in the process of ruining
    the motor because it isn't getting oil.

    Post a pic of your motor or one that it looks like.

    Gas powered bikes are in a different category than ebikes.
