Wheel crate driver

A barmy biker has been banned by police after converting a beer crate into a mini quad bike.

The micro machine was given its last orders after Matthias Krankl tried to outrun cops in Maulburg, Germany.

"It has a tiny one cylinder engine but somehow he managed to break the speed limit," said one officer.

"It wasn't legal so we had to confiscate it but it looked like a lot of fun and would certainly make drink driving more risky," they added.

      It is only forbidden on public ground, if hehad been on private owned ground nobody could have got him. Trying to out run the police does make you a target even on private ground, but they could not have conbfiscated the machine. Here these bickes are quite well known in the 2 wheel "pocket Bike" version, but mainly used for teen agers etc. grettings
