Default Re: Wooden It Be Nice?

Thanks for responding guys! Steam looks like a cool option, I don't understand how most non-internal combustion engines work, but someday I'd like to cobble a steam bike together. As for mileage, yeah, a V8 engine is terrible, but back in the 80's the University of Florida made a motorcycle, maybe 250cc, that got 20 miles per pound, so with my little HF, I'm thinking 30 miles per pound is a good guess, and well, 40lbs for $6, that equals $.005 per mile
