I Would Have Loved The V-RROOM Hot-Rodder Engine On My Bike

Released by Mattel in the early 1960s, the V-RROOM Hot-Rodder engine was attached to your bike or Tricycle and by using the handlebar throttle control you could adjust how loud the battery powered engine could get.

I had a pretty rugged little mountain bike in my youth that I would pretend was one of the bikes from the cult classic Megaforce, if I had somehow been able to attach A V-RROOM engine to it that would have only made it better.
