How to make a rail bike

Recommended Posts

I think I caught this on boingboing. or was it hackaday?

 

There was some kids TV show way back in time that had something like this.

I'm thinking it was 'The Edison Twins' or something mildly educational.

Some kid is riding his 'track bike' and has to flip it off the tracks when a train comes up from behind.

it's impossible to forget that song from the Edison twins.

 

you've got a point lox, with a bit of welding you cold make a side car to carry your junk.

Then work out a better gearing system and you could probably get up to like 50mph.

Yeah, Boingboing. It would definitely be sweet to have a folding version of this, with a nice paint basket.

 

And I can't believe I'm not the only one still getting the Edison Twins theme song stuck in my head 18 years after the fact.

oh, I thought this was gonna be like a 4 wheeler. I mean a motorbike... I'm pretty sure you could get 50mph AND a GIANTASS basket on a motorbike...
