Rhoades Car

I have read a bit about the Rhoades Car recently. It sounds like a viable source of transportation. They say it is street legal; not that legal means safe.

Has anyone had any experience with said vehicle?

dirtsqueezer,

You just like the optional fuel tank in the middle to run your engine!

Man, I would try anything just for the fun of it. I don't care what people think about me pedalling down Main Street in a Rhoades Car. I might enjoy the attention as much as the fun.

For now, I have to restrict my cash outflow to more immediately practical things (like stuff for my bike.)

Did you notice, they mentioned the Rhoades Car was like a recumbent in some ways? Everyone should try a recumbent once. (I'm going to get the best recumbent I possibly can, someday!)

Yeh, it might be faster if everyone pedalled.
