I've started this a few months ago and put it aside because I couldn't get the poly count down to something reasonable, and I also needed a good sound, finally I got it working with a reasonable poly count.
The face count is 5114 but it does span over 2 tiles so it isn't to terrible. If you don't have a lot of memory for your game this may not work good for you. I had no problems with 4 of them on a lot at the same time.
You have to forgive the missing section of the actual blade as that portion would make it way overboard for face count.
It must be placed on terrain to place it on the lot and is found under Hobbies/Misc for $2500 it does not depreciate.
Front and rear wheels are animated, and this was a real challenge to get them both working.
Sims may get on it backwards or sideways, you have to play with the placement to get them to ride it properly. Sorry I haven't figure out this problem.
The sound does linger for a minute or so after they stop riding. I decreased the length of the sound but I just couldn't get it perfect.
I have place this in Hacked Objects, for those that don't understand what a hacked object is, let me explain. A hacked object is an item that has been coded by the creator. It isn't hacked to cause problems for your game, the hacked term is a little scary to some but it really doesn't mean anything bad in this case.
Gives Sims Enthusiasm for the Outdoors.
Sims will gain Cleaning Skills when riding it.
