    Looks like a fun ride for cruisin' the Boardwalk etc.

    I'm envisioning the same bike built with a slightly wider mid-body shell to accomodate lowering the seat and crank down into the car, like an open top velo.

    That's kind of what was going through my mind too. I mean it's cool and all, but whatever would I do with it? Where would I want to ride it?

    My personal vision would be more '57 Chevy Bel Air-ish. I think it's funny that two of us could look at that and think "How might I improve on that?"

    Arcata Humboldt bay Kinetic sculpture race in '90 had a 4 seat Cadillac replica being pedaled by 4 guys.
