that is awesome! my husband works about 1.5 miles from where we live. I just showed him that and he thinks that's awesome too. did you buy that like that or did you make it? he wants to make one :)

Thanks! I built it! It's relatively easy to put together, all you need is a socket wrench set, zip-ties, a hammer, and something to punch a rivet out of the chain with the hammer to get it to the correct length.

You can grab these kits on ebay for as low as 150 bucks but there are a lot of low quality ones. I got mine from a Canadian site, but here's an American one for guys which I've bought parts off of before: http://www.bikeberry.com/

Don't forget to put he seat back on

You guys are going to laugh, but this is my ride. I can afford to buy a car, but wouldn't be able to afford insurance.

This bike tops out at 60kph, and gets like 100 miles to the gallon. It's a 23 year old steel norco frame with a $200 engine kit from china attached to it. It vibrates a lot and it's a stinky 2 stroke. Riding it is kinda like playing with your life if you pin the throttle because bicycles are really only designed to go like 20kph tops.

Upgraded to a van a few years later after I developed a decent sized e-mail list. Needed a bigger vehicle to store the candy that I was funneling the existing customers towards.

Trust me it's way more fun to ride when you're just inches away from being spaded by the rear wheel. Living life on the edge.
I'm just kidding, the seat likes to break off from all the vibration sometimes, I think I took that picture while I was fixing it.
I imagine it makes theft a bit harder too LOL

This kid is in a wheel chair. His dad built the frame around it so he could go out for Halloween. Really creative and thoughtful imo.

Thought I'd revive an old chat thread and see what has changed!

My "rides" have certainly changed dramatically over the years...

Daily driver: 2017 Ford F151 Raptor
Work driver: 2006 Toyota Tacoma
Fun Machine: 2018 Can-Am Maverick

Still no plans for any new cars.

Sorry no pics of the old Toyota lol.

This is my '74 VW Beetle. Rebuilt it from the ground up and upgraded some components as well. It's fun as hell to drive, and I'm planning to put in a more powerful engine soon, which should make it even more fun!

This is my G wagon.

Got this at the start of the lockdowns and I guess the guy was panicking cause I got an amazing deal.
It isn't the newest model but I really like this style cause it's more square and blocky.

I love driving this so much, it's built like a bank vault and is actually pretty fast.
They are awful on fuel though - as bad as a Ferrari Enzo. Luckily no road tax here though so that makes up for it.

I have managed to do around 20,000km since getting it and it's been offroad a few times.
I still smile every time I get in this thing ha - it's just one of those fun cars you really like to drive.

Looks nice! @Fox

I drive a 2015 Hyundai Elantra. I am about to pay off soon as well. Before that, I had a 2000 Jeep Cherokee, loved it but it had an acceleration problem that my brother fixed once I gave it to him. Before that car, I had a 2015 KIA RIO EX (which I totaled oops).

My first ever car was a 1999 Toyota Camry.

Slightly modified S3 Facelift (pre GPF) with doggo on one of my country drives. Fortunate to live near 2000km squared of these roads / valleys. For mental health and business thinking, NOTHING beats a nice drive in a suitable vehicle.
Took my doggo with me last time too. It's no 458 spider, but it's paid for outright which comes with peace of mind that no one can just turn up and take it away if my situation changes. It's also appreciated during ownership which is nice but I'm sure that bubble will pop one day.
