The RevoPower Wheel is starting my bicycle gang


My young rockstar friends and I have been looking at minibikes and mopeds lately, as not one of us has a place to store a motorcycle. Smaller engines that run at 15-20 miles per hour are perfect for students and short range commuters. As these smaller engines don't require a driver's license or license plates in most states, they're a good option for light commutes or the casual motorcycle bandito.

The RevoPower Wheel is a replacement front wheel for a bicycle that contains a 25cc (cubic centimeter) two stroke chain drive engine. The Wheel swaps on in fifteen minutes, and adds just twelve pounds to the bike. The motor drive is controlled by a hand lever which will disengage in case of an accident.

Top speed is right at 20 mph, and this wheel rolls at 200 miles per gallon. The stainless steel gas tank fits into the water bottle holder in the middle of the frame. It's a very nice design move, and it looks pretty slick.

Their unique "no stone left unturned" marketing plan advertises these powered bicycle wheels as an option for commuters, students, alcoholics, hotel guests, and everyone else in the entire world.

Via our friends that live on Gearlog street.

In France, we've got the Solex motorbikes, which are very like this one. You might have seen them mainly in the 70s and 80s. There's an eloquent picture on the Velucruz website. Both consumes the same.

I have a motorcycle and 50cc scooters and now I want this wheel for my bike that has been sitting for 5 years.
