    how are pneumatic motor's measured for power and where would one find a motor the equivalent of a 3hp engine?

    The big question is where will you find a high pressure container that didn't weigh too
    much with enough volume to propel a pneumatic powered bicycle for a worthwhile distance.

    I saw a motorcross bike being developed with such a system but it will never be to practical to power a flimsy bicycle.
    They were using scuba tanks.
