We are gathering interested buyers for a volume shipment to the USA.
The Metrom Bicycle Engine (Back form the Past)
The NOS/NIB Bicycle Engine Kits were manufactured by the State Factory Metrom / Brasov and its are still in original box packed.
The motors are NEW still in its original box, complete with all its useful pieces for installation on a standard bicycle man/woman from 26′ or 28 ‘.
The engine was made in a limited series – in the end of ’90s – by the Arms Factory “Metrom”/Brasov – Romania.
The Factory Metrom was part of the State Group “RomArm” – specialized in the production of light and heavy weapons.
The Metrom Brasov Engine Factory has a long tradition in the production of engines for motorcycles and bicycles too.
The Factory “Metrom” was in Romania what the “Garelli”/Mosquito was in Italy, the “Jlo Werke” was in Germany or the “Whizzer” or the “Sears Free Spirit”/”Bike Bug” was in USA.
The bicycle motor “Metrom” was produced in 1000 units to be used inside the Military Airports and, in limited quantities’ (only 700 units), to be sold on the German market.
The engine is an extraordinary piece.
Unique in its kind.
It was created with the technology of armaments:
– Light and fast: made with special alloy with high resistance.
– Durable: made to last in tough conditions of use.
– Easy to disassemble / reassemble.
35 cc engine, equipped with automatic centrifugal clutch in oil bath, carburetor manufactured under license dell’Orto, electronic ignition, gas tank and all parts necessary for assembly.

It looks to me to be a cute little motor. It would probably be illegal on the road in the state of Ohio, but depending on the price I think I’d be interested if I had some property that I think I could get away with it.
By the way, after you posted the pictures did you find it difficult or easy after you loaded them? Do you think you’ll find it easier next time?
