Monster Bicycle from China
Published on December 29, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter
Here we have a very strange monster bicycle from China. ‘Bicycle’ indeed, it doesn’t have an engine, it is powered by good old fashioned human leg-power. The incredible machine resides in the great city of Jilin in Jilin province and was made by a very handy father for his son’s birthday. What a present, “Now go my son, hit those pedals hard I tell you!” A few more pics:
Whether it is actually possible to pedal this work of art forward is not sure, I haven’t seen any pic of the monster actually moving. But a great thing it is, three sofa’s and one seat for the driver who can take many friends on da way. Strange green man on the back, probably from another planet. Best are the wheels, likely taken from an open-mine transport truck.
Smaller wheels for balance, wonder how this thing corners.
A closer look at the ‘power plant’.
