At least he isn't risking damage to a "good" bike But I prefer the old school rocket bike designs. Especially when you race 'em.Originally Posted by top506
By the way, click on home at the bottom of the page. This guy has all kinds of goofy stuff listed. You can spend hours giggling and wasting time.

There's something that would be fun to watch!...from 0 to 60 miles an hour in five seconds—fast enough to beat a Porsche in a drag race.
I guess you would need something to dampen the steering. Speed wobbles at 60 mph would suck.
That's gonna leave a mark.
Tar and Nox...brilliant low budget spin on the hybrid rocket idea. I'd better book mark that page. This has quite a bit of fun potential.
I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
Stay calm and bring a towel.
Is this the same guy that hit 180mph on his bike? There was a video posted a little while ago..
Ahh, if only that bracket were to brake loose... He'd look like a firefly!

Related but different, I saw pics on the web of a jet propelled bike. Simular to this, but with a mini turbojet engine bolted to the rack.
Nox and parafin has been done in orbital rockets before, I'm pretty sure. Or it might have been O2 and parafin. It has ok energy, and it's really easy to handle.Originally Posted by 2wheeledsoul
