    certainly interesting. It would have to be either friction or front drive. I dont see how a rear chain drive would be possible.

    An electric *pancake* or *pie* hub motor would work just fine......a simple, easy build.

    I wonder if they make a full-suspension version? Could you imagine catching air on that thing? Not a good idea! laff

    I wonder if the pedals freewheel on that at least, eh?

    Why walk or cycle when you can wallcycle?, pedalk? heh heh.

    Or if you extend the bar neck and sit on top, imagine the size of engine you could get in there eh?

    With only a front brake available, I would hate to do a panic stop!
