Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw

Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw

I'm sorry, did you think I meant a chainsaw motor? I suppose that's understandable (after all, two-stroke chainsaw engines are often used to convert bicycles into rear-wheel-drive motorbikes), but I didn't say chainsaw motor, did I? I said chainsaw. Because whoever pieced together this unholy death machine has clearly left the power source attached to a number of other components. They've even opted for a FWD conversion so that the saw's guide blade and cutting chain could be front-mounted.

100% terrifying, 100% brilliant. Perfect for plowing through hordes of the undead or cruising the wastelands of post-apocalyptia. Now, if you'll excuse me, I find that I am overcome by a desire to don football pads and spend the weekend watching the Mad Max trilogy on repeat.

Yes it is a girl’s bike, but there is no sissy bar.

Also, I would be hard pressed to call the rider of this thing a sissy ...

I dont understand the drive system.

We used to put old lawn mower engines on bikes and we’d bolt like a 18” rim on the spokes of a 24” rear wheel an use a belt drive.

There were a few times when a girl’s bike would have made my crashes much less painful. That bar on a boy’s bike can be a real ball breaker.

Just great. Run you bike into a zombie and then have him flailing away at your face and stuck on the front of your bike. It sounds like a one and done and now a zombie two plan.

I never did figure that one out from a practical standpoint. I can dig the whole 'feminine sensibilities' angle, but they might was well have factored a row of sharpened gutter spikes into the design of those old 'boy's' 10-speed and spider bikes. They were enough to make your voice go through puberty twice in one childhood.
