    I would like to see someone try to motorize one of these...:grin5:

    Cordless drill, and an afternoon of playing. That joker would be humming around the shop.

    Why, certainly.

    Like Stan4d said, or any of a variety of electric power options. Heck, I bet I could shoehorn an R/S 35cc 4 stroke under the seat, with a 2 step jackshaft system to get the rpm's down to workable levels, and replace the forward axle with a pair of kingpins for steering.

    Not that I think doing so is exactly prudent.

    This one is tad better suited to powering up.

    Steering already enabled.

    You need to remove one wheel to make it street legal.

    Forget prudence.

    Let's talk about sanity.

    You are just now questioning that?:grin5:

    Sanity is a relative thing. Relatives take it away.

    I, like anyone, measure sanity by my own internal standards. Since there are 6 people in here, that standard is quite flexible.

    No, I can't say that I have...
    But I can say I've seen the Amish driving all sorts of things on the road, from fork lifts to riding mowers to Bobcats to a steam traction engine (and all things in between). But I think the funniest thing I've seen on the road are Amish kids (and adults for that matter) on inline skates flying downhill in a tuck!

    Yeah we could make a whole thread of crazy Amish stuff. I see them skiing behind buggies on inline skates.

    My grandma has one of those, It's fun to be pushed on but the steering it scary. It's unconventional and at any speed you can flip it. LOL
