On two wheels and a plan

July 13, 2011

Travis Bonnett is a man of practicality. It’s that realism that served as the impetus for the 24-year-old Onion Creek resident to mount an engine on the 26-inch Schwinn bicycle that he bought from Wal-Mart in order to save money on gasoline.
Yes, that’s right. After watching a “how to” video on Youtube, Bonnett thought, “Why not me?” He ordered an engine kit from www.gasbike.net, complete with a half-gallon gas tank, that he installed on the frame of his bike.
“My friends were skeptical at first,” Bonnett says. “But honestly, it wasn’t very hard to do.”
