I can't even imagine trying to jump one of these. lol

Wonder what it weighs? Probably not super crazy heavy, but it gives the appearance that it is.

Oh yea it’s heavy as f-ck! I got one from the garbage just to scrap long time ago. It was like hefting a mini bike into the trailer.

My buddy picked up two of these a couple months ago, there pretty cool looking. It’s a cool display  if you have a bike room anyway.

Gotchya on as heavy as they look then! yikes

Seeing Freestyle Freeks pics, these would be fun to do some downhill street racing on! Or like I said maybe with some motors of some sort, other than that, probably not pleasant to pedal around on.
