Motorcycle or Dirtbike (runs for 15-30 seconds)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I am a student at Union Middle School in Union, Missouri, USA. Our assignment today was to submit an idea for your television program. I think it would be neat if the teams had to build a maotorcycle or a dirtbike that can keep working for at least 15-30 seconds. This would be a good challenge for the teams. Thank you for your time in reading this submission. Thanks a bunch, Brendan

Maybe it could be one that carried ALL FOUR team members!

A FOUR-PERSON motorcycle? Great idea! Boomerland build a long, long three person bike some years ago, but it was rare even then (1930's?). It would be a great challenge to build a four seater, and get it to work with all four on board- with only two wheels. A word of caution, though: You probably DON'T want to make this a speed challenge. Give them a low-speed twisty course with plenty of hay bales!
