150 Miles Per Gallon

I met this young man today ... he was pedaling his bicycle through this parking lot.  However, you can see that it has a small single-cylinder engine attached to it.  He says that you start pedaling and build up a little speed ... then pop the clutch and the engine starts running.  He says he can get up to 35-45 mph with a gas mileage of 120-150 mpg (miles per gallon).  He referred me to the Kings Motorbike website.  He mounted the engine on a "beach cruiser" bike that he bought at a "big box" store.  This bike happens to be single-speed ... but I've noticed these engines also mounted on multi-speed bicycles.

This is for those who don't want to do as much pedaling ... but really need something that gets better gasoline mileage than they are currently getting with their car ...
