Wheel Chair Has Motor (Oct, 1947)

Wheel Chair Has Motor
R. H. Hamrick, of San Leandro, Calif., connected a 3/4-hp. Briggs & Stratton motor to the rear of his wheel chair to save energy in traveling the two miles from his home to the shopping district. A lanyard is run back to the clutch (taken from a motorcycle), and a wire controls the throttle.
