Now that would make the wright brothers smile!

That's nice is it a production model or a one off? The wright brothers would have smiled if they had seen this Bicycle.

Very cool. I bet those drop bars get you an extra 2 maybe 3 mph.

These seem pretty cool too

It's called a Derringer. (I love the name).

50cc Honda powered, centrifugal clutch.

www.derringercycles.com

$3,500.

There's a red one with luggage that makes my heart go flippity-flop.

There don't seem to be any reviews from people who have ridden or bought one. The bikes will make cheap living room art when the company goes out of business.

These are just Chinese motorized bicycle engines of the sort you can find on eBay. $150 shipped, provide your own bicycle.

No CVT, no gears, no lights, and white tires. They look good, and everyone oohs and aahs on the web, but it doesn't appear that they've made any sales.

Sure, but my point is that this isn't a Whizzer and there is nothing about it that justifies the high price.

(This is a Whizzer)


Anyhow, if you're the creative sort the Chinese engines let you come up with something that has the appeal and looks of an early motorcycle. They're an absolute hoot to ride around on.

Heck, some folks are even selling a jackshaft kit and a chain-ring freewheel that allows the engine to drive the bike via the regular chain with whatever gear shift mechanism you might have (gears, 3 speed hub, Nuvinci CVT etc.)

You like Whizzers, start your own thread.

This here thread's about Derringers.
