Travis Bonnett is a man of practicality. Itâs 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, thatâs right. After watching a âhow toâ video on Youtube, Bonnett thought, âWhy not me?â 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.
âMy friends were skeptical at first,â Bonnett says. âBut honestly, it wasnât very hard to do.â
