A Motor Bike?
So I saw it locked up and stopped to get some pictures and a closer look.
This is a Diamondback, older model, but a strong frame.
I could not tell what the motor was, could be Honda, Yamaha, or some thing else.
It is a 2 stroke that runs on mix fuel. So, gas and oil has to mixed together, like 30/1 mix.
And the reason for this, is that 2 stroke do not have a oil pan to oil the bottom of the motor when it running.
Un-like you car motor it has a place to hold motor oil so the bottom of engine is lubed, with a oil pump and splashing oil.
This looks to be about 50 cc to 90 cc motor from a real motor bike, like a kids dirt bike.
I think it would be interesting to make something like this with a weed eater motor, I have a 49 cc motor in the shop, one of these days.
