How about a needle in a haystack, you could always look for a Honda Motocompo. Only 53k ever built. 60lbs and cute as hell.

I recently saw a reasonably priced all aluminum bicycle at Walmart. I thought it would be a great bike to have aboard. Unfortunetly I am still a working stiff and not there yet. Two more years and I will be free.

Without a davit, we're limited to something we can manhandle on and off the boat.

Here's how we stow our bikes in the cockpit for overnight trips. The aft rail is protected with firehose/velcro. If we need to clear the cockpit, the bikes can be secured on the foredeck along the fwd rails.

bobsyiruncle, I agree that std brakes and skinny tires don't mix well with 30mph powered bikes. And motorized bikes are not a joy to foot-pedal for 20 miles on a bike trail. I'm seriously considering converting a single-speed beach cruiser with a rear coaster brake into a motorized bike when the Admiral's looking the other way! I think it'd be a kick to ride and a novelty to operate. The whole thing should cost under $300. If it's a flop, not great loss...as long as I don't kill myself in the process.
