Tina, is this a mini-bike with a German flair, or what?! 😄 It's so, Retro! I want one! 😍 I took my original Driver's Test in my brother's 1958 Beetle (36Hp - new!). It had no gas gauge. If the engine started sputtering, you reached down (since I'm short and don't have spider-monkey arms, I could no longer watch where I was going, sorta briefly) and flipped a lever 90º, way under the dashboard on the 'firewall', to open the "reserve tank". Ahhh..., the good old days. 🙂
