Bikotor

From Graces Guide

Bikotor was a motorcycle produced in 1951.

It was, in fact, a cycle attachment that had its 47cc two-stroke engine positioned over the rear wheel, which was friction driven. To keep it lightweight, it was alloy constructed with a flywheel magneto and petroil lubrication. The fuel tank was strapped on top of the crankcase. Despite being neat and well made, it was not popular and the make soon disappeared.
