Boat Motorcycle?

Seems like you could actually carry one of these on a small boat for cruising.

At 1:55 you can see the whole thing comes apart and goes into a duffel quite easily.

That is impressive!

But..the inflatable tires are not going to last long or go much over 5-10 mph.
There are not many 2wd motorcycles.

Re: Boat Motorcycle?

They actually have a site at hereĆ where they sell DIY plans for this thingy (for a bit more than 30 bucks). They have two versions including "M" with proper wheels (instead of low-pressure inflatibles) and 7hp 4 stroke engine. I don't believe they manufacture them so I guess you can't buy a ready product. At least yet - they are looking for investor to start making 'em.

Thanks, haven't heard of them. When offroading, you tend to bog down and go slow, and a bike needs to have speed to stay up and not fall over, so id' guess that is why a quad or tri is common.

BTW, a 2wd bike is easy when they are electric, here is the kind of bike I've got the parts for..two hub motors and batteries in the frame..

Re: Boat Motorcycle?

I have a 2 stroke 80cc engine kit installed on a old bike it runs super quick, its super light weight, easy to handle and fuel efficient, i'd recommend it to any one experienced in mechanics cause that thing is unreliable as hell

Re: Boat Motorcycle?
