The JET Bicycle - The most dangerous unsafe bike EVER
World’s Most Dangerous Jet Powered Bicycle – Norah
While science and technology are busy in bringing new and innovating
gadgets to the market, there is another line of production at work too;
Do it yourself projects! These are the people who enjoy doing what they
do as their hobby. What we have for you today is yet another story of
such a person who is known for building with tools that an engineer
would laugh at. Meet Colin Furze, a British garage inventor who has a
series of inventions to his name! For his recent invention he says; ‘It
is as Mad as it looks!’ The invention is known by her name; Norah and is
a jet powered bicycle whose safety one can question.
The bicycle has been made just the way it says in its name; a homemade
jet engine has been strapped to an old bike and our inventor has made
the most dangerous bike, perhaps ever made! His list of inventions may
lead one to believe that our crazy inventor here is an engineer who has a
passion for coming up with crazy ideas and executing them, however, you
will be surprised to know that he is a plumber who loves to create such
dangerous DIY in his home workshop. A few of his inventions include;
world’s longest motorbike, gas powered stroller and the fastest mobility
Colin Fruze is a living proof that one need not have an expensive
laboratory and tools at one’s disposal to produce something amazing.
Norah can reach speeds of 50 Mph and as anyone can imagine, it is quite
dangerous yet pretty much fun to ride it. The engine exhaust gets
flaming red hot at full throttle rendering this DIY a really ‘hot’
vehicle! Our crazy inventor decided not to use a heat shield and instead
managed to put in some distance between the engine and rider’s butt.
But the heat is going to be least of your worries once you’re on this
bike! From pleasing ride to hard to control ride and finally near death
ride, this experience will definitely leave you amazed and thrilled.
