    We had some names over the years from different teams, we'd never have been allowed on television. There was an all girls team from Middlesbrough, I'll leave it to you to work out what sort of Cycles they called themselves. One team had no idea what to call themselves, so the one with the pen wrote what he'd been told on the entry form. Phukty Pharno. Trust me, it got worse than that.

    Finally got some time to put into FrankenPed. I'm suprised at how well it rides and how fast it is. I'm guessing about 30mph, maybe a little better. And it gets off the line pretty good too.
    Still gotta put a starter button on it and make it pretty, paint it up and such, But it's all there and hauls booty.
    Heres a pic or two. Yep, FRANKENPED.

    I'm gonna paint the tank flat black after the break-in period to blend it in with the frame. Then, hopefully I can put a few miles on it before something major breaks ---- and the upgrades begin!

    Growing up with 50's tv and radio, I wanted to be one of those cowboys who jumped on his horse and rode the range, at will. That, the Lone Ranger and the Texas Rangers prompted me to name mine, Ranger. Not exactly "clever", but loads of meaning!

    Sounds very fitting for a motorized bicycle, since they can go just about anywhere.

    Ok, now for clever, not a secret, I like the old Pope motorcycles. Play on a favorite treat when I was a kid... Call a tribute bike: Pope-Sicle

    LOL Moto Pope. Arlo Guthrie's motorcycle song. Replace "motorcycle" with "pope-sicle"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g266Uwp6ZnI

    "I don't want a pickle
    Just want to ride on my Pope-Sicle
    And I don't want a tickle
    'Cause I'd rather ride on my Pope-Sicle
    And I don't want to die
    Just want to ride on my Pope-Sicle............"


    First time I have heard that song in ,,,gotta be decades. still cracks me up.

    My last bike was a 66cc china girl in a Walmart Huffy, which I named The Dark Rider. I took that bike as far as I was able to in terms of upgrades and safety, and she still let me down when she decided she didnt want to start one day. Rather than continuing to throw money at a bike that I had already spent well over a grand on, I decided to go non-kit. Built up an American made Schwinn frame with a 98cc minibike engine. Everything that I wanted out of my last bike and didn't get, I've found in my new bike. The old bike has been stripped apart and even the engine disassembled. I feel that the name The Dark Rider is more appropriate for my new bike than it was for my old bike. It may not be all that original, but I'm doing it anyway.

    It seems that bbb has taken us to the "dark-side" of the motorized bicycle community.

    No peddles required on a go ped. Been riding it and it's hitting 28-30mph.
    All that's required is a regular drivers license and a helmet in California. There's not many hills in San Jose, Ca. So NO PROBLEM.
