Lean Mean Green Machine

The difference between One-percenters and the rest of us is the price of their Green Machine.

If you're nostalgic about the Green Machine tricycle you had as a kid and you've got $75K burning a hole in your pocket, then check this out: The Lean Mean Green Machine!

At its heart rumbles an air-cooled, 80" cu. Harley-Davidson v-twin Evo--hailed by some as the engine that saved the iconic company--providing 60 horsepower for speeds up to 50 mph. The front wheel is driven by a chain housed in a protective cowling that replicates the toy's frame and, like its predecessor, the cycle is steered by two handheld push/pull levers that control the two rear wheels via a directional linkage. The hand levers include brakes while a foot lever controls its manual 6-speed transmission. Its 8 1/2-gallon fuel tank is built into the frame, hidden from view, providing a range of 400 miles.

Awesome concept. Incredible execution. But a top speed of 50 MPH and six gears to get you there? Come on! Just imagine trying to cruise around on this thing... Upshift upshift upshift downshift upshift upshift downshift downshift dowshift upshift upshift dang I'm too busy shifting to have any fun!

I can understand not wanting to go faster than that on this thing. I would probably be terrified to do so. But there's no reason why it shouldn't be able to do 100 MPH with that engine and a six-speed transmission.

Sure the price is brutal. I appreciate the build nonetheless.

I just want a grownup size one. Pedals. Maybe improved wheels, but one that you can still do spin-out sliding skids on.
