not usually a fan of small gas devices. but this things looks pretty cool. 4 stroke kohler engine and can do a 60% grade. hollow wheels that can hold 2.5 gallons of liquid. the price tag seems up there at $7k.

I have one of the originals, a 1968 Rokon Trailbreaker with a Chrysler 134cc 2 stroke engine and an Albion English 3 speed transmission. I can put the front wheel against my house, give it a little throttle and it will climb up the wall. They are pretty much go anywhere machines......just don't expect to get there in a hurry. Mine has no suspension, and will do a blistering 22mph in 3rd gear.

Their neat but really expensive. I'd rather buy a yamaha tw-200 for half the price.

I bought one new about 12 years ago. It was really slow, and heavy, and awkward handling, and expensive. My Honda Trail 90 could run rings around it both off and on the road. It really didn't do anything very well so I sold it. If the terrain is so rough you need two wheel drive you are better off with an ATV.

Grab one of these (http://www.christini.com/bikes/christini-awd-450) and you will own any post-apocalyptic dirt biking zombies.

Yeah I don't see a drive shaft/chain to the front either. :dunno:

Driveshafts run the length of both forks to run the front hub
