In its latest form the Cykelaid motor-assisted bicycle is far more workmanlike in design than such machines have seen in the past.

The little power unit fits very neatly to a special front wheel with the petrol tank above the mudguard, motor cycle type spring forks, and the silencer actually bolted to the mouth of the exhaust ports. Control is limited to a single-lever carburetter, and the whole of the mechanism is as simple as possible. Two ladies' and two gentlemen's machines are shown, one of each type being provided with a substantial motor cycle type carrier, and all with the motor cycle type stand.
