Kicksleds are Nordic, almost quintessentially Finnish ways for grannies and grandpas to get around town in wintertime. You lean on the handlebars and kick the sled along, with your groceries on the seat on front. The leisurely pace of a regular wooden kicksled hasn’t been enough for the builder of this one, so he has combined it with the running gear and rear wheel of a two-stroke 80cc Suzuki moped.
“Quicker than your neighbour’s kicksled!” Sure enough.
The geometry of the sled matches the ordinary wooden one, but this one has been fabricated out of furniture steel. The handlebars now have brake handles, and you get four gears. The sled has also been modified to be more aerodynamic, and that might prove useful: the seller says he’s taken the contraption to 80km/h!
Since you would most likely hoon the thing around a frozen lake, the tire is studded with bolts. I’m sure the traction might be more than adequate. You get proper footrests, too.
The machine is for sale for less than 1000 eur, so as long as the lakes are frozen you should get on your feet and bring the sled home.
