Skaters’ pusher: all play, no work (Feb, 1965)
Skaters’ pusher: all play, no work
The rear skater in the quintet at right furnishes locomotion â€”the others just go along for the ride.
Strapped to his back is a homemade air propeller powered by a lawn-mower motor. The blade of the pusher fan whirls in a protective wire frame.
Introduced on Como Lake, St. Paul, Minn., it can do 30 m.p.h.â€” without extra riders.
