    I wonder if MalWart offers X-10did warranty?

    Good thing they didn't have that when WE were kidz.

    When I first saw it, I thought... "I could mount a mini-bike motor on there..."

    might be fun...

    Wow! Who would have guessed that Mr. Walls and bicyclists would catch the sidecar disease?

    Looks like just the rig for pedaling out to the mailbox.

    Electric motors, and controllers, etc. up to 1,000 watts (~ 1.34 hp) If you remember your mini-bike phase as a boy, you may recall that 1-2 hp was quite enough (unless you had big Rupp with suspension and a 5hp Tecumseh).

    I'm thinking two or three 2-stroke chain saw or blower motors would fit nicely in the sidecar, to help keep weight balanced. For more power, just keep adding motors.

    Would we need to talk about brakes?

    Yeah! Besides, there's no honor in crashing with the brakes on!

    Hey all: I was thinking this is a prime candidate for a Whizzer conversion (with a hop-up kit). Maybe with some BMX disc brakes, and maybe wider wheels, and......Oh boy, this could be dangerous!!!(fun, but dangerous) Vaya con Dios, Dutch
