Am I the only one who desperately misses his General Lee Big Wheel after watching this? (I also had a rad Knight Rider model, but my Dukes-branded trike was much better built, and withstood far more abuse.)

I did notice that there does not appear to be “spin out lever” on any of these modern specimens. A major engineering oversight, in my opinion. It’s just not a Big Wheel without one. Of course, at those speeds, you’d probably need a roll cage to use one.
