I added this to my original showroom on January 11, 2015.
This is a 'Metro Design' Gyro Cycle I received as an unexpected but welcomed birthday gift from my father-in-law in January 2015. I guess I treat his daughter really well. :) He ordered it from the Hammacher Schlemmer retail/catalog company based in Niles, Illinois, USA. In all my years in the hobby I've never had any interest in motorcycles so this was my first one and it's actually quite fun to drive. It's not exactly hobby-grade but does provide a little mindless fun when I need a break from wrenching on all of my projects. It runs using a 2-channel radio, a gyro, rechargeable 9.6V/800mah NI-MH battery pack, has working suspension, a 'turbo' feature for increased speed and nice rubber knobby tires for good traction. The coolest thing is it has a wheelie bar and can pull wheelies remotely with the touch of a button that controls the spring-loaded front fork that compresses and rapidly releases to shoot the front end into the air. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.
