Crazy DIY Bike Runs With Electric Drill and Car Batteries
Posted By Lori Zimmer On April 29, 2011 @ 2:20 pm In DIY,Green Transportation,Innovation | 2 Comments
A cyclist has made the ultimate DIY bicycle  — complete with electric motor, comfortable office-chair seat and of course, a beer cooler. Powered by two car batteries running through a power inverter, the “bike ” scoots along thanks to an electric power drill that is powered by a 120v wall current. The hodge podge design also incorporates several bike frames and eight wheels.
Two bike frames set vertically hold up the front, supporting the batteries and fixing the front two wheels , while a third frame acts as a traditional frame with two more to secure the back. The entire mix of metal support make the bike seem more of a doon buggy.
The owner was truly creative in his/her method of recycling found objects into one monstrous green machine, but we do wonder: What do other cyclists think when it clogs the bike lane?
