    I just picked up a funky Blue autobike today for free! It looks like everything is there and a couple of new tubes will put it back on the road. Can anyone tell me more about this bike? Is anyone looking for something like this for a build? I'll try to get some pictures up ASAP.

    Re: Autobike Classic...(picture updates...)

    Anyone have any information on these or ideas how to incorperate this into a rat rod build?
    Not sure if anyone out there might be interested in using this to build a ratrod...
    The 3 black "weights" on the rear wheel are attached to extra spokes that pull the spokes out as the bike moves faster enabling it to push out a plate that changes gears... it also reverts back to 1st gear as you slow down.
    I fixed the tires, lubed it up, adjusted the brakes and it all really works!

    I remember the ads on TV for them but know little about them. Nice find though! Looks to be in great shape.
