Scares the hell out of me to watch it, but now I want to make one.
of course, I would be wearing a helmet at least... Ah, the invincibility of youth!

Here is the math on that.. 8" tires.. guessing 2:1 drive @ 7000 rpm at the engine... top speed 83mph with the engine maxed out. I think a tricked out robin 144cc could pull it off

Seeing that reminds me of all the aches and pains of past snowmobile wrecks.

Actually, I'm kinda glad they're not... I would be worried about going to the grocery store.
Probably look like a demented Frogger remake

If you watch the videos he says he did have one explode but I think he was doing close to 80 that time.

I watched a bunch of his videos. Pretty entertaining especially the ones where he used a pressure washer to hydro-form a pulse jet... then naturally, he puts it on a bike. The 600cc bike engine on a cushman thing was neat too
