Buried deep in the story on the BIKEEXIF website about 6/5/4 Motors’ very impressive Yamaha SR500 custom motorcycle, a photo stopped me in my tracks. 6/5/4 Motors has created the coolest-looking balance bike that a kid could ever dream of.
Balance bikes are bicycles that do not have pedals or a drivetrain. A youngster learning to ride straddles the bike and Fred Flintstones their way forward. It is a great way for youngsters to learn to balance. You can remove the pedals from a conventional kid’s bicycle to achieve the same thing, but it won’t look as cool.
Hope this concept goes into production. Can you imagine a sweeter Christmas present?
