My Dad had a Bicycle with a Gasoline Motor attached. He loved it and told me the only time he used the motor was when he had to go up a steep hill or to rest his legs.

I'm in Paris right now...chock full of bikes out here. Even the city-issued Velib looks very vintage-y. Will try to capture interesting shots for you (if I'm fast enough)

The old Fart...They are great for climbing hills as your dad did. I have one also...a bicycle with a 49cc gas emgine on it. I bought the engine and installed it on the bike myself. It works great. I think I've seen your father's picture with it on your blog. It was a great machine.
Jen..Thanks for the visit...Paris...woow I'm jealous. I'll be on your blog shortly... Elles sont formidables ces Parisiennes...n'est ce pas?..lol

The French were still making these things in the 70s - a brand called "Mobylette" if my alzheimers serves me correct.

Nikos, sadly the stopped production of the Mobylette in 2002..It was a great vehicle for city riding

This was the first motorcycle I ever rode at the age of 11 on the Greek island of Spetses!

Funny how I remember such things...

was looking for any information on a bike that was called a haflinger, was only in production in 1901. Any info and pics would be great.
