The ultimate toy!

What is a 'flyke' (flying bike)?
A bike that can fly, simple as that! There are 3 parts to it:
1)'FLYKE' (= pedal-driven trike)
2)'MOTOR' (= lawn mower)
3)'WING' (= paraglider)
The 'flyke' is the clever bit, as it allows 3 modes of transport:
1) Pedal-powered road bike (14 gears, cruises at 10-15mph)
2) Propeller-powered go-kart (up to 30-40mph, useful climbing hills!)
3) Flight (using motor & wing)
