Cool!

I've always wondered how the mechanicals work on those. After Derrick takes it apart I'd like to see the innards.

It's got the pully variator/clutch set up like most autmatics now, a weird butterfly carb, and that's about all you can see from the outside. The coolest part is it has a neutral, so you can gun the engine with out spinning the rear tire. Pretty cool. Not running that great now, hopefully just clogged jets, once I find where the hell they are...

Sweet looking machine.

I see it can be kick-started, does it also have electric start?
