The rear wheel of the vehicle is driven by a large crankshaft – unfortunately, the power source is also the limitation of the entire operation: the bike only has a top speed of around five miles per hour. Still, for a relaxing trip through town sure to draw attention, it would definitely be a lot of fun to ride.
