Why Skate or Bike, when you can Skate Bike?

If you look at this ad and think? Well that does not look fun at all, you are pretty on the mark. One of these red monsters showed up in our neighborhood in the eighties and we had no idea what to make of it. At first you think, well this think is a skateboard and a bike! How awesome is that! Then you realize that this thing is a skateboard AND a bike and that maybe those two things were not meant to go together.

After the initial novelty wore off, it went into the back of my friend’s garage. I remember seeing it in the mid-nineties and thinking how weird it was that it was still there looking as new as it was.
