Default Now accepting darwin award applications

Just thought I'd share this picture attached.

Looks like he will only make it to 73 mph with a gx160. So maybe the 212 could get you that fast (hypothetically speaking)?

Then there are these lawn mowers. :-)

That's quite a bike there. Astonishing speed out of such small displacement...

But nothing quite so Darwinesque. These guys look like pros.

I LOVE IT...it has that 1900's throwback look my great great uncle had restored a 1903 Harley. That crazy thing used linkages not cables. A true work of art.

I could put my 80" EVO on a kart and do 110 uphill.. on the way to The Imp. valley...But, it looks better sitting in my '95' Electra glide classic. FLH

You're quite the confusing fella then. We get tons of those kind of n00bs on DIY daily so I'm pretty much jaded with 'em.

Legitimate high speed retro bikes (and the fastest lawnmowers, no less); we're not real used to seeing that kind of innovation. Your links were more interesting, so sue me.
