Just saw a bike on the news a guy from Stockton,Cal built!

It's 14 ft tall and 24 ft long!!!!

He's going to take it on "Tour" !

There was a semi-phoney bike about that size on the Discovery Channel on a short lived program "Big". They built several things way oversized that almost worked.

That one was featured on Discovery or one of those channels, there was a film of a bike magazine reporter trying to ride the thing. He crashed. Seems like the guy who built it was the only one who could ride it.

Don't need a "Deer alert" with that one, it just makes "Jerky" out of them!:clapper:

From what I understand, it didnt have that much horsepower. For the size, actually, horribly underpowered. I hear the guy clocked nearly 20000 miles on it, though.
