The rocking bike
15 July 2009 14:57
This is the latest child’s motorcycle-related product to be doing the rounds on US websites – a motorcycle rocking horse.
It’s been built by a guy called Felix Götze for a three-year old motorcycle enthusiast.
It has a 150cc two-stroke engine that powers the contraption at an ‘appropriate’ speed.
Other components were pulled out of the depths of a German bike garage, while the pin-striping was done by local airbrush artist Thomas Weber.
The clocks and seat are all from old German bikes, and even the handlebar design is specific for a toddlers ease of use.
It doesn’t come with any high-side warnings on it, however.
Don’t bother looking for one in the shops – it looks like this could be a bit of a one-off.
