Put An Outboard Motor On Your Bike (Feb, 1943)

… Or Put An Outboard Motor On Your Bike…
AN ATTACK on the trans– portation problem from a different angle has been made by G. E. Griffin, of Vass, N. C, at left. Mr. Griffin has attached a 3/4 h.p. aircooled outboard motor to his bicycle, the shaft geared by friction directly to the rear tire. He reports that the arrangement works very well, can do 30 m.p.h. or even better, and doesn’t appear to wear the rear tire badly at all.

    This is a very interesting article not to mention helpful in the wake of high fuel cost.
