how to make an compressed air powered bike? Answered

plz tell me about d price of a rotary air engine n itz working


I actaully saw a show on it once. It was on "planet Mechanics" and they made an air powered bike. They had two large scuba tanks filled with air and had a rotarty type engine. I believe they give the name of their engine on the show. You can youtube it for short clips or you can probably find the torrent and download the episode.

Here's a good article about the different types of air motors.http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/200/FPE/MotorsActuators/Article/True/6422/MotorsActuators
Here's an ad for a book to tell you how to convert gasoline engines to run on air.http://www.fuellessusa.com/AIR.html
This motor looks like it would be almost perfect for your use.
It is 5 hp. 2500 rpm. weighs 28 lbs, and is reversible. You just need plumbing, a tank, mounting brackets, valves and a bicycle.
