We met his guy we met in Talladega the other day... 90cc Chinese motor on modified bicycle. Said it goes over 60 mph, gets 200 mpg. Front disc brake too!

He's put 27K miles on it since building it three years ago, including a trip from Talladega to New Orleans. Said he also has a trailer that will haul up to 150 pounds...



Check out the custom, Havoline 5-quart gas tank behind the windscreen...


One more, from other side...

That bike is just so wrong... and so right... on so many levels.

There looks like some clever engineering there, all driving through the original bottom bracket and cycle chain/gears.

Dallas Motorcycle Show

Hey Doug.... you did a great job on your presentation at the Dallas show today.

They should have given you 3 time slots. Having you quit after just one and giving time to those other guys to clutter up our minds with stuff like safety etc etc. just didn't seem right.

I'm now the proud owner of a Dirtster -------- T-shirt.

We need to hear more from the pretty lady working with you at the booth.

Looking forward to your next adventure.

Talking Dallas Show

Hey Doug,

Sorry I missed the show - glad I got to spend time with you. My mom was so impressed she asked for me to put your website in her favorites list! That was a great experience to share with 3 generations - my mom , me and my son. We talked about it most of the way back down to the coast.

Careful on the way home 'Bama. Look forward to hearing from you.

James
