    Hey everyone, here's my obligatory intro:

    I've had a thing for two wheeled vehicles ever since I got a mini-bike when I was 10 or 11 (1984? can't remember...:whistling:). I then graduated to a Batuvus moped, then Triumph motorcycles, then onto Harleys......then back down to a bicycle.

    I was bored one day and stumbled upon a "weed eater" bike on the internet, thought it was kinda cool so I tried it for myself. I have a Target mountain bike and a weed wacker so I spent a weekend on it and here's my creation:

    Friction drive. Not real fast but fun. Isn't that what it's all about?

    "Fun" is much more important than "fast", so you've done just fine.
