Really cool looking. Kids are gonna go crazy over that thing.

Too bad Chevy didn't make this instead of the Volt. Maybe we'd get some of our money back.

I remember when you could buy a small internal combustion engine to clamp to your bicycle. Went put-put-put.

Us poor kids just had a playing card clamped on with a clothespin. It also went put-put-put, but we did all the work.

LOL! I burned-up a lot of now very, very valuable baseball/football trading cards on my 24” Schwinn. 20-20 hindsight...

Hate to be a spoil sport.

This thing rides so low that if kids ride it on the street, then there are gonna be a lot of run over kids by drivers who never saw the bike/board.

I can only imagine that this thing can only be safely operated in a controlled environment.

It looks very dangerous and too fast, so of course I want one. Do they make a scaled up one that can hold a 6’ tall “kid”?

“Us poor kids just had a playing card clamped on with a clothespin.”

We initially had to use the playing card/clothespin but then we graduated to partially blown up baloons. The ballons didn’t last long because the spokes would burn holes in them but they made more noise than playing cards.

I just used up all the 3,956,048 copies of Marv Throneberry cards that were tossed in the garbage every time the big kids bought a pack of 6 cards and the gum.

I remember Ernie Banks, Johnny Unitas, Yogi Berra, Big Daddy Lipscomb, LG Dupre, Ron Santos, Otto Graham, Hank Aaron, Frank Gifford, Lenny Moore, Alan Ameche, Art Donovan and scores more. The remaining shoeboxes full of hundreds and hundreds of other cards I gave to some cousins, who sold them at a garage sale. Heh...

You could have used water balloons; that would have kept ‘em cooler.

Water would have dampened the sound. The idea was to make as much noise as possible. You should know that! :-)

LOL. Not to mention also would have gotten you wetted-up. I used balloons, too. Admit the dry ones made more noise than water-filled, but when they finally popped, I always thought it was a tire blowing-out. Changing/patching one was always a messy chore.
