Is This Considered A Motorcycle? Homemade Open Crank Motor On A Bicycle

Cycling is becoming more and more popular. The humble bicycle, that has existed for centuries, is now many people’s preferred means of transport. It’s free, good for you, and is great for the environment.

This guy, however, is bucking this trend, by moving away from the bicycle to a motorized method of travel. You see, the ingenuous fella has attached a hand crank to his bike so that he can travel across town without even needing to pedal.

The kid drew on his obvious engineering expertise to attach a motor to his rear wheel, which can be powered simply using a hand crank on the handlebars!

Lazy and genius – what’s not to like!?
