    Hi ace.Welcome to MBc!
    Sweet looking bike. I dont know its value, but it would be a shame not to ride it from
    time to time.

    If you search and are unable to find your answers, don't hesitate to post your question. Someone will
    steer you to a link, or reply to your question. Were here for each other! Enjoy! :grin:

    nice looking motor bike

    can't be worth more in money -- than it is in fun to ride

    I would be riding the heck out of that THING

    ridden 80 ft -- that's strange -- but an unusual delight of a find
    I could never ride anyTHING for just 80 ft ?

    if you do ride it -- guess that you should break it in easy

    I don't recognize the ZipCycle at all. But it's a fine looking machine.

    What sort of engine is that? How about the drive? That wasn't at all clear, unless it's a friction drive.

    I understand now. Checking out the links that srdavo posted made it all clear. Thanks.

    So the Zipcycle would be an MB that has a small, frame mounted, friction drive. Interesting.

    It can only go up in value as time goes by.
