Although I am a new forum member, I have been lurking here for three months or so, reading the entries and examining the pictures. Several years ago some friends and I created a small company building string-trimmer powered bikes using a friction roller drive. The name of the company was "Zipcycle" and over a period of 7 or 8 years we built 2,000 or so bikes. Now that I am retired, I still build a few (very few) for friends and family. I am now finishing a sidecar for the Zipcycle, and plan to do a few board track racers. Great site, and many great ideas. Too many projects, so little time.

Tom,

I think you talked to a guy from Eva named "Jack" last week, he bought one of your bikes at Goodyear in Cullman, now he's experimenting with different frames and engines.

When I learn how to load pix on this new forum, I have a question from a ZipCycle owner who came by from Altoona, has what I think is a collectors model. It looks to me like it was customized by the Choctaws in Mississippi before you put the engine on.

Like I said, gotta get a handle on resizing pix, I took about 8 of his cool looking bike.
