A year or two ago I saw a bike mounted on floats. When pedaled hard (about 20mph)it rose out of the water on skis, and then needed less pedaling to keep it going. I'm wondering if anyone here has any info: on this. So long as water could be kept away from the engine it could be a lot of fun....................sarum

Thanks for that Porsche. I thought that might be expensive - I've emailed them to find out. Sooner or later, if not now, the Chinese will come up with something affordable.

Thanks Sparkie. Stan4d's link(below) is what I'm looking for. Like; cycle to the river/beach, unpack it, zoom up stream or out to sea. Then cycle home. I'm old and live alone, my bike is my only form of transport - putting a motor on it has transformed my life! Good on this forum for all the free help so willingly given..........................sarum
