Mad Max Bike With Single-Cylinder Engine


Forget your wussy electric bikes and silly Segways. This is what real men ride when they are feeling too delicate to actually pedal. It’s a Dunlop Bushrager mountain bike retrofitted with a gas engine.

Jeroen van Bergeijk came across this amazing bike mod while on tour in Australia. Found in Port Adelaide, the Mad Max bike has a one-cylinder engine mounted inside the frame with a gas tank up top. Best of all is that it still works as a proper bike, with gears, chain and chainring intact. The engine is instead hooked up to a sprocket on the other side of the rear wheel. Amazing, and surely a lot of fun.
