    Do you remember how much fun your Big Wheel or Green Machine was???

    I have been looking for a Big Wheel style GreenMachine for my niece since I figured I would have an excuse to have one at my disposal if I got it for her. That's when I came accross this!!:

    Yeah, we loved our big wheels. I can still remember the sound of plastic wheels on concrete.

    Big Wheel...
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    There's a company that makes adult Big Wheels, but they are no longer available on the market. I saw a build up of a Green Machine that was modified with longer tubes and crankset, as well as a bigger seat to accommodate an adult - now that would be sweet.

    Big Wheel? Looked like fun, but I think I was 12 when they were out and, dam it, they didn't fit

    Now that Green machine looks fun (love go-karts). However that looks like it could be a few of the many rides I had on some homemade go-karts that I crashed, took out a fence, jumped a ditch or two, lots of bandaids (big arse bandaids!) and road rash galore (but still fun - and fun to help build). Life of a tomboy!

    I met one of my very best childhood friends while I was riding my big wheel. I was patroling my block on my big wheel, and happened accross this new kid on a green machine. So I rolled up to him, asked what he was doing, and we were friends after that.
