Default Motive 70cc Wheelchair Road Test

Faster than a speeding Nash Rambler, more powerful than a can of angry hamsters, the Motive gasoline powered wheelchair is the answer for all you crippled up ex-bikers who can't ride anymore.

Check out the road test at: Rick Sieman: SuperHunky.com

And yes, that's a Bell Star 120 in perfect shape. Seemed the appropriate helmet for such a fine machine.

Is that the Bell Star I almost bought for $50? Glad you kept it!

BTW: do you have to register the chair and get a plate and stuff?

Dude, that thing is pretty awesome. And I will never complain about motorcycle mods again.

That is freakin' COOL!

Can you damp the front casters so they don't flop around like a gurney?

When are you gonna post a video?

Thanks guys, and Morbo, yes that's the helmet (you can see why I kept it).

Some weenie outbit me for the fishtail exhaust pipes, so I'll have to find some other bizzare exhaust system to grace the Honda chair.

Oh, and when I see a cop, I just shut the motor off and start pushin' mysef' along there boss man.

When I got rid of that miserable Chicom carb, I swear it was like I gained five horsepower.

I'll post a video in a few days on the site. It's a lot of fun.

Just find an old coffee can and chrome it. Instant 'cred' on the street, yo!

Matt- that was a great review. As I have a very dear buddy that is in the same boat I have to show him your wheels. He's got two chairs right now that are kind of parts chairs. I could imagine him building this. He's a gunsmith and has great mechanical skills.
Have all the fun. Does this mean you need race leathers for the Kart track now?
