Hi all,

When i was about 14 i had a toy that was cross between a bike and a skateboard.

Sturdy steel construction, had 4 skateboard wheels, single 2 inch pipe that bent around from the base, and curved up at a 45 degree to the handle bars. Half way up between the base and the bars was a seat. Arubber flap at the back was used for stopping.
Coloured black, and weighing in at around 10 kilos, it was a tonne of fun.

My problem is that i would like to share this with my little brother, but for the life of me cannot find anything similar on the net.
It was not custom made, and if i recall correctly , the name was Pipe Rider.

Anybody else seen or perhaps owned one in the past?

Explanation: Flagged!

So its not this...

www.piperider.co.nz...

But is more like this...






... but with a seat???


Sourced by putting "Skateboard Bike" and "Skateboard Scooter" into google for both web and images.

My search links for images were...

Skateboard Bike [googleimage]

Skateboard Scooter [googleimage]

Personal Disclosure: I hope that helps!

Explanation: If you are using a windows OS then it should be easy enuff to do it up in MSpaint and if you are using a linux based OS then Gimp is the way to go.
[Note. save it as a .jpg and not as a .bmp OK!]

Personal Disclosure: There are/were so many versions and hybrids it boggles my mind! :shk: Some of them are like WTF? How I ride that?




P.S. u2u me if you need help uploading it to ATS ect OK!
