    Those things (or very similar model) were all over the place forty years ago. Dependable and economically made, but not much speed or power. They say 24 mph but that must be when you are also pushing with your feet. The advent of the Honda Big Red ATV helped put them on the back burner, but It'd be much cheaper than a new quad. Let us know how you like it!

    My buddy has one. Things pretty tough and I would say 25mph is about right.

    Ive always thought the thing would be pretty useful for dragging out a deer in an area you couldn't get a wheeler.

    I see um when I go into TSC to buy something and wondered how they hold up. Be interested to know how loud they are when running and how it holds up. Keep ups posted if you purchase one.

    You and I think alike Bigblue. I sit on one every time I'm in there. Hey its practical and really its just about the fun anyway. I once had something similar back in the dark ages. It was street legal with license and inspection sticker. On and off road it was a hoot and would fly.You maybe just got me to spend the 500. What a deal considering all the people from thruout the east spending 20-30000 for a tricked out side by side they haul in here to ride the Hatfield McCoy trail.

    Wonder how their adult size electric mini-bikes hold up? For $500, 3 or 4 seasons out of that and you'd be way ahead of the game. Says 45 minute battery life at constant throttle. Seems like a reasonable gig for getting from camp to hunting area on gently sloping land.
