Sunday Fun: The Bicycle Powered Car

Mounting a tandem bike to the front of a Honda to generate the power to operate the car has never looked so fun.

Bike-powered ice cream and bike-powered DJ sets are old news.

Life OD, a video production team that promises "automotive shenanigans" definitely lived up to that commitment to the audience by documenting their project to generate power from a bike to operate a car.

The tandem bike is mounted to the hood of a Honda Civic to generate power for the car. There is some concern about the whole thing being a crime, "but a "victimless crime." The cops eventually show up, but the town responds positively while the team rides the bike/drives the car to McDonalds. The whole thing is ridiculous, amusing, and at times, laugh out loud funny. Watch it above.
