I have built 7 friction drive bikes. I live in Western Washington, and first thing every morning I have a steep 1 mile hill . I with lots of cussing, kicking and Yes, Crying.
Am able to manage the monster almost every morning (I can go another longer flatter route) even when the road looks like a river.
With a combo of Tire pressure, mount pressure, throttle pressure. And Blood Pressure. I would like to build something with a belt or chain I think. But what. ??? And what do I need. So what's a transmission? Get the picture?
I'm baffled with catalogs
Thank you
I thought the State of Washington had banned all sorts of IC engine assisted bicycle devices from the road?

Or am I mistaken?

Actually you are not mistaken.
They are not outright banned.
They are just not included in the statute.
The police have told me as long as you follow the laws they have no problem. I have had no problem. Knock on wood.
