    I just ordered one of these for my son to ride/monkey at our local BMX track. I thought you guys might like to see see it. I have no affiliation with the company, just thought you would like to see one. I already have a list of mod's that I want to do to the Hack...

    My son can't wait. :thumb

    Believe it or not the owners of the company have started to sell them at Wal-Mart. It's all about exposure. They list at $ 275.00 and with tax I payed $300.00 delivered to my local W.M.

    Link to their web site,,,http://www.impaktbicycles.com/

    That seem to good to be true. It looks like the motor won't fit...

    Thanks Hogwild, so maybe I'll buy two motors, one for each rear wheel (LOL) oh boy 98cc's here I come !!! and I think we need to put a brake on the sidecar wheel so we can lock it up and do serious "U" turns (LOL) Ok, I'm goin to stop now..... but I do have a pile of bike stuff sitting out back, might have to look thru it !

    For a few bucks more you can get either the CAG pocket bike reed valve engines, which are more robust, or this screaming deal, a 49 cc EPA compliant electric start 49 cc engine with transmission and carburetor.

    Of course you'll have to graft it onto the bike. Look out you'll put yer eye out..

    Thats pretty slick. I'd get one of those hub electric motors and slap some batteries on it somewhere.

    Thanks for the link. I never saw the show. But, when I found it on BMX Museum, I had to have it.
