So among dirt riders, it was only a matter of time before someone attempted to create a true mountain bike – motocross hybrid. A couple of industrial design students at ApriliaForum have posted plans and final pix of a motorized dirtbike on a light mountain-bike frame. (It looks suspiciously like something Julien Dupont would ride.)
But as one commentator at VisorDown.com points out, without pedals this thing is just a light motorcycle. (Also, that is emphatically not a MTB frame; but that is a sweet Marzocchi fork.)
Still. With pedals, it would be the world’s coolest off-road moped!
