Cuban's quest: world’s tallest bike

The pockmarked streets of downtown Havana aren't very bike friendly, but that isn't stopping Felix Guirola from trying to ride into the record books.

The 48-year-old Cuban said he's built an 18-foot-high bike - taller than a one-story building - and has asked Guinness World Records to recognize his feat.
