Drilled Power Bike

SLC Man finds biking is easier using his drill.

“My professor doesn’t want to call it a competition but we are all seeing who can come up with the best design for a vehicle with wheels to climb self-powered up stairs, says Ramsey Hennis.

Hennis was looking for a motor offering low speed and high torque he found what he was looking for in his garage, using the drill he used to mix concrete.

Currently he has no plans to use his drill powered bike on the street. But “I could do it. All I would need to do is make a rig that could connect a throttle to the trigger.” The results of the non-competition will be announced by the time this issue goes to press.
