I have a pulse jet of the same size as he has on the bike. I have got it to run on propane but need to make a fuel system to use petrol or liquid propane to get the most thrust out of it. Temped to try fitting it to a gokart.

You have taken my idea for making the ninebot safer.  This is what I wish for.  With your photoshopping skill, you could put the ninebot in front, somehow copyright or patent it, send it around, and get someone to make and sell it.  You would make some money, and I would get a small share.:cheers:  TM2017 Steve454.

When you can't decide what you want to ride... :confused1:  get a Sbyke!

Can you imagine a bunch of investors sitting around a conference table trying to come up with the perfect name for this contraption. "I got it!!! Let's call it a Sbyke!" Hilarious!:P

Here's an interesting old invention:

KU4HZHO.jpg

HZ-1 Aerocycle

In 1954 the U.S Army decided that walking into battle is for poor commie suckers, and that U.S infantryman should have the privilege of flying into the frontline, thus traversing minefields, rivers etc with ease. The HZ-1 Aerocycle was the horrifying response to this bizarre request from the Army. This combination of a helicopter and a pogo-stick guaranteed amputation when one realizes the pilot stood about three inches above the totally exposed rotor blades. Engine control was provided through a motorbike-style handgrip, and movement was controlled by the pilot’s leaning movement. Imagine trying to control a helicopter like a Segway, but without any digital stabilization or fly-by-wire systems, because it’s the 1950s. The U.S Army Transportation Museum stated, “it’s determined that the craft was much more difficult to fly than had been expected.” Well, no shit. In addition, the two rotors would smash into each other at high speeds, rendering the HZ-1 useless even in the hands of highly trained pilots. The program was cancelled in 1957. Morons responsible for coming up with this idea of a lethal hoverboard were given slaps to the face.

I still remember the 1984 Olympics in LA when the guy flew the torch into the stadium with his jet pack!

Hybrids never work out. (Unless you count the OneWheel.) ?

This wheel/half-bike tried and failed.... It's the 'Snikky' Bike from 2 years ago. (Nobody backed their Kickstarter. :facepalm:)

Oddly, the bizarro hybrid scooter-skateboard-wheel thingy below made a better go-of-it.

Probably best know as Gauswheel, not too safe looking but I think they sold a few... :efefd8a002:
