Cycling is one of the best forms of exercise. Not only that you improve your cardio and increase lung capacity, this activity doesn’t put as much stress on your joints as running does. Still, this young man decided to use his brain instead of his muscles, and that’s why he designed this amazing contraption.
At first, it might look like a regular bicycle, but upon further inspection, you will notice the thing that makes it stand out. That’s right, it sports a motor. And not just any motor, this one is homemade. Using a 232cc OHV Pushrod engine with a compression ratio of 4:1, this bloke created a proper motor bicycle for himself!
Although it may sound simple, this was not an easy task! Just check out some of the parts that went into manufacturing this awesome machine. Volkswagen cylinder, piston from a diesel vehicle, B&S flywheel, camshaft, valves and magnet. It doesn’t stop there either. This masterful man created a homemade crankshaft, pushrods and cylinder heads! Without the exhaust pipes or silencers, this is as clear a build as it gets!
What is there left to say about this brilliant individual and his stunning creation? Not much, so click on the video and see it in action.
