    any infotmation
    We are searching about a two stroke engine to be fitted in a bicycle
    Now all what I can tell you is about a little two stoke engine, without clutch nor gear box, perhaps becoming from France, to be fitted in a bycicle, named LAVALETTE.

    Some Gitan mopeds may have used Lavalette engines.

    Astra 56-57 models.
