Wow... just curious... does it by any chance sound just like a Harley Sportster?
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Unfortunately I can't remark on the sound of the thing. I found that little tidbit among the thousands of other two-wheeled marvels on display at Davenport last year. If you appreciate anything gasoline or steam powered, you owe it to yourself to spend the weekend there once a year. If it has a power source and gears and wheels, chances are you'll find it on display there.

Funny you should mention that Possum. The same thought went through my head when I first saw it. Do you really want to ride a Cushman frame and wheels at 70 mph?

I thought the pertinent question would be "do you really want to ride a Harley at 70mph??" :D Never mind the cushman frame and wheels!! :o

yea, one of my friends in highschool had an Eagle. It would pull us both at about 50...My parents would never let me have anything with 2 wheels and a motor...Which I guess is why one of my first purchases after getting to my first duty station in the Navy was a Honda..
