hello all. i just acquired a 1978 batavus w/ laura m56 engine. it was mobile untill yesterday. there are several problems with it. the first is that the pedals don't always engage. i have to roll the wheel a bit before they engage, and they usually dont stay engaged for too long.
my bigger problem is that i can get the engine started, but no power gets transferred to the wheel. the drive pulley spins when i rev it, but i dont get any power transfer to the chain. if anyone has any ideas about ether of these problems please let this mechanically deficient soul know how to fix this. thanks,
