    Oh, internet search Guru's. I call upon your awesome power to help me find something. Has anyone seen those kits you can add a gas motor to a skateboard? Like the kind where you get an old weedwacker and use the motor to drive the skateboard? You would ususally put the motor in a back mounted type configuration with a cable throttle and stuff. Thanks for the help

  3. This sounds like it'd be as fun as one of those vacuum cleaner motor-powered "hover vehicles."

    All I could find was people selling the motor kit, including the motor. They wanted $500 for the whole kit.

    That's what I found, too. Well, I'll go look at some garage sales this spring. My dad and I will have a lot of fun building it anyways.
