Not a Bicycle
But pretty green! I spotted this fellow at the farmer’s market last weekend at The Green Spot, my local eco-friendly gas station, taqueria and convenience store :
What the heck, right? It kind of looks like the frame is built out of an old pinball machine…….
It runs on several small car batteries. I asked him if it was street legal, and he just laughed: “Ha Ha Ha”.
I should have gotten more information from the guy, but he was fielding a lot of questions from other people about his ride.
As I walked away from him, I heard this high-pitched whining noise. I turned around, and the guy had already taken off and was going 40-50 mph down Buckner Blvd!
You’ve just got to love that sort of thing. Good work, Sir!
