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.
