Home-Built High Wheel Bicycle
I came up with the idea to build a high wheel bicycle similar to the ones from the late 1800's. It's built entirely out of used barn cleaner chain links as well as rebar and flat iron. Everything is welded together.
  The bike has a green frame with yellow tires, as we were always Deere fans. When I finished building the bike I fabricated a metal man to ride it. Then we added a 2-wheeled cart with a seat and a motor that turns the bike wheels and makes the man's legs move. It looks as if the man does all the work. (Wayne Bergsma, P.O.
