This month we’re joined by Mike Festiva, who has a great YouTube channel documenting his creative budget vehicle builds, including a number powered by the Predator engine. In fact, it was his video that inspired Garrett’s friend to build the Predator KX, and in turn Pete’s current torque-converter bike project. Our discussion covers a wide range of vehicles, from two wheels to six — mini bikes, trail bikes, street bikes, and Mike’s amazing “Mini Pinzgauer” project. Along the way, we talk about Eric’s trip to announce the Daytona 200, Pete’s trip to some great mountain roads, the new Royal Enfield Meteor 350, and the Ford Festiva.

You can view Mike’s videos on his YouTube channel, Mike Festiva, and find him on Instagram @mike_festiva.
