    Heh, those things crack me up...

    And the my daily trips to get the mail! Let's see, 1/2 gallon tank, 4 mile round trip, I could make 17.5 trips to get the mail on one tank!

    It just looks like such goofy fun...

    This is similar to what they had in France in 1966. The big problem was that they were so quiet that if you didn't watch out you'ld be hit stepping off the curb. They traveled at about 25-30 mph.

    If you liked the videos of the bike build, you should look at the video tour of his Uncle Woody's workshop, what a character!

    Great little shop!

    He does do a great job on his videos... And that Uncle Woody is definitely a character!
