Hello from Manchester!

Hi, I'm Mike, from Oldham
I ride my Scott mountain bike a couple times a week, these days its got trail tyres and a touring saddle: my 50 year old bits are past racing!
I've joined up mainly for some advice, I've bought 'an old' bike with a little engine on the front!
I'm trying to find out about the bike though, I cannot find any info anywhere: I'm hoping someone on here will know about it
It says Braune Btl on the left rear dropout, and has a number on the seat tube....thats it!
I'll add some pictures when I can work out how

Here we go! Its a great bike to ride: is it legal to ride it without the engine driving the wheel?
I'd even look at registering it as a moped of some type, but it all depends on the age of the frame

Thanks for the hello!
My old bike has got an Eagle Autobike engine, if thats any use to anyone: I'm much more interested in the bike though, any ideas what it is?
My mate has built a coupe of recumbants, his own is a 2 wheeler but I'm a bit concerned about stability, so I'm after a trike...anyone on here got either?
Really fancy a go but being so low down...seems a bit dangerous to me!
