Motorised bicycles are not a new invention in 2021. Motorised bicycles though not very common in the country but some few years back,they had stormed the Kenyan market before again disappearing. A man has sparked reactions from Kenyans after sharing a photo of unusual motorised bicycle.
The photo shared in the Nduthi culture group shows a bicycle powerd by an external engine that has been placed in the bicycle carrier.
The engine which appears to be that of a motorbike has been linked via the chain link and attached to the rotatory rear wheel gear.
From the photo,the bicycle appears to operate this way . When the engine is ignited,the chainlink will rotate and transfer the energy to the gear attached to the rear wheel which then also rotates pushing the bicycle forward.
The comfortability of the rider is however in question given the location of the engine. See some of the reactions of Kenyans below:
