    This fellow came by and he was quite an interesting fellow with and interesting ride. I didn't catch his name but was able to snap a few photos of his bike. The motor is a leaf blower engine and it is turning a skate board wheel which is the drive wheel. He was able to lift it off of the tire when stopping. Extremely simple use of bike parts, while it is not good looking, it has a certain simple elegance.

    "Necessity is the Mother of Invention."-don't know who said it, but certainly applies here. it never ceases to amaze me how we as humans, will find a way, by hook or by crook. i'd like to hear how it sounds buzzing up the street. :evil:
  3. There is virtually no limit to the number of ways someone can mount an engine on a bicycle. :) This example proves that, haha. :D :D
  4. that is way cool - it doesn't matter how 'ugly' it looks - we will always think it looks cool because it's 'homemade'!!!
