About 3 years ago I was at the park up town which is one of those built by the WPA or CCC boys back before WW II, and a powered skate board kid came by. Made a lot of noise. Moved along about as fast as a teenager could run. I didn't get to look at it up close to see what engine it had but it was a two stroke.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

Back in the early 60's O and R used one of those teeny tiny little engines with a flex shaft on a pair skates .I think it scoot along at about 12 MPH .

Not real fast but fast enough to skin you up from ankle to head if you wrecked it ,asphault fever . :o
