    Yes, we definately need a video of it running! I've seen the ones that go on a rear wheel, but this home-made job takes the cake.

    If that's a two-stroke engine, it probably puts out as much pollution as a Hummer...

    Jeff Foxworthy: If anybody in your family ever died immediately after saying, "Hey, y'all watch this!" You might be a redneck.

    Honestly, I thought it was a joke picture. I had no idea someone would be that crazy.

    What's with the child seat?

    I've never understood the concept of putting motors on bikes. If you want a motorized bike buy a Vespa.

    Heck, anyone can do that; where's the challenge? Besides, you priced a Vespa lately?

    Loud, probably DOES pollute as much as a Hummer, and smells bad unless you like the smell of racing castor.

    Yeah, just get a Vespa - a 4-stroke one.

    Thats what makes it so crackin'.
    Racing castor is a smell I like much better than the synthetic 2 stroke lubes.

    pollution wise there is quality- percents of pollutants whitch has little to do with fuel consumption or power, and then there is quantity- volume of exhaust which directly follows fuel consumption.
