Looking at the ads in my Dads Popular Science magazines when I was a kid back in the 70's, I always drooled over the Bumblebee friction motor, not to mention the Carl Heald mini bike kits.
Yeah, my dream goes back a few years, now my dream came true.

Ironically, I wanted a moped, but it did not fit my budget, then I saw a HT equipped bike, and that was it.
I think in a city core of 70,000 there may be about 10 people that own a HT equipped bike. I've spotted about 3-4 of them so far and talked to two of them.
I just got mine built and only have about 45 minutes road time between tweaks and bad weather, cars slow down, heads turn, I get the feeling people are staring at me.
