Electric Drill Bike

About: Hi, I am Griffen. Joy and you will see that most of my instructables will be about Farming, building things to ripp around your property on, blacksmithing, and knife making.

This bike is powered by a drill and goes as fast as a barbie jeep with a low battery. This process takes only 10 minutes.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

- Twist Ties
- Drill
- Old bike ( without chain )

Step 2: Twist Tying the Drill to the Bike

First, you get your bike and twist tie a drill to it. The drill spindle needs to rub against the tire.

Step 3: Finished!

Now you are finished. When you turn on the drill the piece at the end (I think its the spindle) will turn and if it is tight against the tire it should spin. Thanks for viewing!

    I'm considering doing this, and I have to say I like it, mainly because the drill has ventilation ( I've seen another instructable where the drill vents were covered with ductape.). but How do you control the bike speed?

    Nifty and to the point. Wondering about any ideas for keeping the chain and using the battery(drill) occasionally for additional boost up hills. Any thoughts on the subject? THANKS

    I got it for free from a friend and I completely tore it apart. It looks different from what it used to. It has a different tire, no brakes, no chain, and no gear.I enjoy taking old bikes apart!
