The wrong bike!


I saw this today and I’ve realised I’m on the wrong bike! THIS is what I should have taken. I like trikes anyway, but this hybrid bike, trike and truck is just great. Imagine how much stuff you could get in the back? Maybe even sleep in there? I’ve seen one with a windscreen too.

Being mechanically minded I had to see how it had been made. The bike engine had been turned through 90° in the horizontal plane. The drive sprocket now faces rearwards and has a shaft bolted to it. The shaft drives the wheels through a diff, but there’s also a second gearbox inbetween. It must have 10 or 15 gears and be able to pull some very heavy loads.

The back section reminds me of the wagons in the old cowboy films. Yee-Harr!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
