A Dream Project

While watching some videos of pathetic motorised bicycles on Youtube, I came up with this idea. Problem is, I don't have the technology, skills, nor money to try it, so if any can, i think it may be cool to make a "Supertrike"

Check it out:

-An Ultra Lightweight Motorcycle Frame (Durable, and Lighweight frame to handle extreme forces at high speed)
-4 Mountain Bike Wheels (2 on each side at the back)
-A small car or big Motorcycle Engine (something FAST!)
-Motorcycle Brakes and other Components (for durability at high engine speeds)
-An Automatic Motorcycle Transmission

The challenge is...
-The reason it would need to be lightweight is because it would be awesome to be able to pedal it, since the "powerful" motorised bicycles and tricycles can no longer be pedalled on the Youtube videos.


Just something i hope someone takes on... Please do then upload a picture! No prizes though
