That DOES look fun, but I think I'm too heavy for it.

The Green Machine has been around as long as the Big Wheel. Long standing debates about which was better.

I don't think there has ever been much debate. Once you got control of it, the Green Machine was far superior. It is the separation of the steering and drive wheel that makes it work.

And yet, the front-vs-rear-drive-car debate rages on.

Pah! New and improved Green Machine maybe. Big Wheels were for people on welfare.

I've seen dozens of big wheels with flat tires, but I've never seen that happen to a Green Machine. They are/were the Lamborghini of neighborhood tricycles.

I can't find what I used to have and can't remember the name. Can someone please help it's bugging me.

1)It was from the early 80's
2)It was kinda like a big wheel, the pedals were on the wheel
3)It was mostly cheap plastic
4)It had a big fender that would wrap around it on either side of you
5)It had a brake lever so you would pull on the lever and you could do spin outs

anyone...anyone...soblue
