    That's pretty strange alright!

    Now, the Designer part of me wants to know if you took any more pictures of it. I would love to know how they managed to tie in 7 sets of pedals and chains to one drive wheel.

    It looks like whoever built it, sure knew what they were doing. It's a nice looking piece of machinery even if it IS strange!

    I can picture it now. Ka_c4_boom, vlparrish, skipjack, skimax, Carl and Chuckie riding this to go fishing. They might have to make the basket in the middle a little bigger. Ka's ego wont fit in that little basket.:wink:

    Jeb, no we didn't ride it... I think it would have been a lot of work for only two people. We hung around for awhile, we were thinking some group might try one but they never....but everyone wanted a picture of it.
