    I'm not sure where to post this, but I've had a couple beers tonight, and this popped into my head . . How about an adult sized Green Machine? Anybody in there 40's knows what's up..

    I was thinking pedal powered, but that creation is very cool. I'd ride it.
    Those guys make some cool vehicles.

    I like it, geometry will be pretty key, look at the riding position on a kids green machine, we may not be as flexible as kids anymore.

    Look at some of the pedal powered drift trikes, very cool stuff and could be a good basis. Not sure how the steering rods would work for a green machine.
    Im interested, wanna see more.

    When I was a kid I had the red version of the Green Machine, it was dubbed the Red Baron. I've never been able to find a photo of one or a scan of the advertisement on-line. I've got a picture of me on Christmas morning (1978?) holding up a large size Stormtrooper with the Red Baron in the background.

    I remember the Red Baron.

    Very blurry pic, but Kmart had the Red Baron, and Green Machine for just under$17.

    Right on! If I didn't have that photo of myself I'd almost think I was imagining the whole thing.

    I remember when Parker brothers concepts built the motorcycle version, along with a pink one that auctioned off for breast cancer awareness.

    An adult pedal version would be awesome, but then again so would an adult skyking tricycle.

    Weld a unicycle to a Go-kart rear axle. Make it pivot just behind the rear seat.
    Steering arms are simple enough.
