Well no, that picture is not quite what this invention is, although the picture is quite fun. I came across this article the other day, from Bikeportland.org’s Monday roundup. Due to time constraints and energy, I didn't get a chance to do a write-up on it earlier in the week.
This is from a local NH inventor and looks promising. Bikes can sure be used for a lot of things but this is quite unique, pictures are scarce but there is one the article link you should check out!
The article is from the Boston Herald and quotes the guy as looking for offers as he believes it can be built at a very reasonable price, but only if its built in the US. I am glad some people are really starting to look at the true costs of a product they want to bring to market and not just go the fast easy money route of having it made in China.
Its a two page read but very interesting!
Here is an old (2007!) article from Treehugger on bike-powered lawnmowers. Most of these are retrofits onto a current frame or design which certainly works but many do not seem comfortable. This recumbent design looks and sounds a whole lot better for sure.
