$75,000 Green Machine is a big trike for adults

Relive your younger days with a whole lot more horsepower on the Green Machine trike for adults. The $75,000 beast sports a Harley-Davidson engine and push/pull hand levers for steering.

If you had a Green Machine tricycle as a youngster in the 1970s, then you were automatically the coolest kid on the block.

You may be all grown up now, but you can still make your friends green with envy with the Lean Mean Green Machine for adults.

The $75,000 trike is 9 feet long and features a 45-inch diameter front wheel. Hammacher Schlemmer (who else would sell such a thing) claims it as the world's largest front motorcycle wheel. The back wheels look they came off of a race car.

Just like the original Green Machine, this trike is steered by two push/pull hand levers.

Unlike the original, this trike has an air-cooled Harley-Davidson V-twin engine capable of hitting speeds up to 50mph. Try doing that on your plastic Big Wheel.

The hand levers also control the brakes while a foot lever triggers the 6-speed manual transmission. You can get about 500 miles worth of range on the gas tank.

Huffy still makes a version of the kid's trike Green Machine for around $120. The Hammacher Schlemmer version should totally smoke it in a drag race, though. That's worth an extra $74,880, right?
