moped in reverse?

Kevin Barrans /

had the strangest thing happen to me the other day. kick started my 79 sachs westlake and the wheel and pedals all started going backwards. i gave it some gas and it went backwards even faster. i shut it off, pedaled around a bit, kick started it again and everything was back to normal. no problems since. anyone ever heard of this?

Yeah, that happened with Adam's 77 Westlake once. Not sure why, but it is fine now.
