Chain Drive a little more noise than I would have liked. But the Belt-Drive and sprocket option would have been hard to integrate into the rear suspension.

Gas Scooters all come with integrated/Engine/CV transmission to the rear wheel. All of that had to be removed, and New Rear Swing Arms Fabricated.
