I've been interested in "augmented bikes" for a long time, and just this last few weeks inherited one from a friend. I think half the fun of owning one of these machines is the tinkering. I'm absolutely sure I spend more time looking over the lil bike and contemplating improvements than I do actually in the wind with it.
When I was thirty years younger and a hundred pounds lighter, I had an old Puch moped that I rode until it would no longer roll. I think I would have given vital parts of my anatomy in those days for a specimen such as this one.
