I know we can bring back the varoom motor and put on the electric motorcycle. For all you young ones that never herd of a varoom motor it was a plastic looking motor with batteries that was popular back in the 60’s that we put on our bicycles that made a engine sound when you turned it on or I guess we could cloth pin playing cards on our wheels so it would make a clicking sound when the wheel starts rolling lol, those were the days.

My favorite was catching a 12oz can on the rear tire just right and it getting caught up against the brake pad arms. Sounded like a two stroke when the nobbies were new.
Unfortunately my first car was 79 2 door ford LTD. Super lame I know....
It sounded like what ever was coming out of the speakers mixed in with some whoop n halla when we were suffering on the roof. That was its name, the surf mobile.

An electric track bike might be fun. Then it's just mostly tires to worry about........

Watch something about a TT ZERO team, and the sound it made on the straights was insane.

Mark, Im pretty sure mine was called the "Varoom 2", but I dont see an ad for it. It was a different time. As kids, all we had was a few hour of cartoons on Saturday morning. There was some strange kids tv shit on sunday, but saturday morning ruled. I remember how disappointing this Vroom thing was. The ads made it larger than life. The ad is for the full bike which none of us had. I think most of us just got the motor.
