Yeah, it has really interesting wheel covers and good lines... It only lacks headlights that you have never seen before!

I loved these from the moment someone linked them into my cyclecars thread. So much cooler than a go-kart.

Me & a buddy have been kicking the idea of some kind of off-road deal with a streetbike engine for a while now, but this has me thinking in a whole different direction.

Looks like a lot of fun.

Thanks

We would have used too much glue... Then we would have to have Ronnie come over and fix our mistakes... and then once it was right, I would have just put it in the wall anyway!

This looks like a refined version of the SFVISBF with a power plant.

This reminds me of a friend that had 4 Sunfish sailboats. We went out on them a few times and just had a ball - racing, crashing and tipping over. Pure fun because they were so simple and basic.

An old saying with boats is that "the amount of fun is inversely proportionate to the length of the boat". It seems that the same theory applies to cars - these and the SFVISBF prove the point.

Follow the link and go to the 'data" page of the Road and Track "April Fool's" issue.

Too funny --I love the time/speed graph comparing the Cycle car to a race car and the 8 horse Clydsdale hitch.
