Check this out. I ran across this jewel last night outside Mamacitas. As a side note, if you haven't eaten there you need to check it out. They have some awesome food and and the atmosphere is cool too.

As we were outside admiring this piece of art, the owner came out to give us some details. He took the credit for getting the bike free of craig's list but his girlfriend quickly let us know that she is the one that got the bike. He said he ordered the kit from someone online and put it together himself. This baby will cruise at a max speed of 27 mph on the flats. It runs of straight gas with it's 4 cycle engine. Notice the spare gas bottle on the downtube. I told him he had better be careful and not confuse that with his Heed or Powergel energy drink. He tried to get me to ride it around the block but I didn't. Looks like a lot of fun but I think I'll stick to pedaling for now.


  1. Very cool, but the really cool people ride bikes without motors!

    BTW, yesterday I was online looking at "puss wear" for the fall rides. Proud of me?

  2. For sure cool people pedal! I am proud of you for looking at the cold weather gear. There is an art to getting the right gear for winter riding. Ask a friend that has some good gear or the folks at the LBS. Good gloves and head gear are key!

  3. Add a banana seat and a basket on the front of that baby and I'd make some sales calls on that thing! Sweet. kj

  4. I love it, but I think I'll save that for when my legs just won't go anymore - hopefully along time from now :)
