  14. If you look at it that way, I guess we should be grateful for innovative people cos they have invented lotsa things we take for granted today.

    I still think that is answers the question that nobody asked, though!

    It looks like someone actually could build this though I doubt it would be that rideable. Still that cluster of exhaust pipes would certainly give the cars behind you something to think about.
