That first bike reminds me of this mentally challenged person in my neighborhood. Someone set up a sport bike with training wheels for him and he rides it around on the sidewalk at like five miles per hour.

I think they are serve as a stable kind of "kickstand" if I am not mistaken and would not be down during the ride.

Ewihelm, of all people to post a post that depicts something we wouldn't be able to build (at least us averaged wealth members). Tsk tsk "You're going to bed without supper". -Punk >_< But seriously though, that's a sweet truck.

I think most of the cost of those vehicles is time, not money.

I recall seeing something like the motorcycle-glider in 1983-ish Stuttgart, germany. What I saw was actually just a fiberglass shell over a regular motorcycle, but I still think it would be a nice vehicle option.

The bike's trainer wheels definitely need to be able to be lifted / lowered. - Lift when it starts moving (beats the whole point of having a bike they don't) - Lowered when it slows down or has to stop at a junction or traffic light (funny sight though if the pilot somehow forget to do so)

I hope the first one has a roll cage. Then it would be great :-)
