The bicycle was spotted in Maiduguri the capital of Borno state in Nigeria. An unidentified man was spotted riding it.
The generator engine powered bicycle is built like a tricycle with three tyres, two at the back and one in the front.
According to the Facebook user who spotted the bicycle, the invention would be extremely useful in a state such as Borno which is still affected by motorcycle ban due to Boko Haram insurgents.
The user said: “A young talented guy in Nigeria made a local bicycle that uses a motorcycle engine in Maidiguri, Borno State. This bicycle is powered by a generator engine which helps driving without the use of pedals.”
“This unique technology will surely help in especially the State which is still affected by motorcycle ban as a result of Boko Haram.”
