that might hurt some, but i doubt "too fast" is a big problem with this.

All's it needs is seat belts. Room for a second, lighter, person. He looks pretty chill there.

Good idea for the coming gaspocalypse. It just needs harnesses for dogs, donkeys, or horses and he will be set. :lol:

Something like that would have saved me a lot of tennis shoes when running with dogs all those years.

actually he told us he built it so his german shepherd could ride along. also said he has a 5th wheel hitch so he can tow it places behind his pickup. it looks quite sturdy. if i ever see him again i'll ask more questions.

A seat for a shepherd and a machine gun mount. Perfect.

unfortunately i didn't think about gears until later. i think it's a single speed. i did notice caliper brakes. if i'd had a real camera there would have been better pics, and more than the one.

It looks heavy. Needs to be an "electric (double) bike".
