PastPosts * Frankencycle

My good friend, Boh Cyprain, recently traveled to the northwestern section of Cameroon where he snapped this picture of a rather interesting motorcycle. He writes:

Hi Dave, that motorcycle you see is the invention of one guy from Bamenda, my region; it actually works they way you think it does. Look critically and you will also notice that the gear selector is intact and works very well too.

I'm trying to picture Steve McQueen in The Great Escape outrunning the Nazis on this one.

I think this needs a cameo in one of your stories.

Good for the inventor. It's actually kinda cool.

I'd feel very uncomfy on a bike with a steering wheel.

David Cranmer said...

Cullen, There are tons of stories from Cameroon. Fascinating country.

Leah, Maybe a little steampunk happening there. Maybe?

Charles, I'd kill myself for sure.

James said...

That is cool and crazy all at once.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

I like the steering wheel!

David Cranmer said...

James, Well spoken, sir.

Alyssa, C'mon lets go for a ride.
