Homebuilt Noped

Glenn Krueger /

I built the homemade Noped in the 1960's. It was made from a bicycle, a 1 HP 4 cycle Briggs and Stratton lawnmower engine. It had a speedometer, lights and a drum brake. It did 30 mph with a centrifugal clutch. Back in the day, there was no self-service gas stations. I would "piss off" the attendants when I would fill up the one pint tank for less than a dime and often for only a nickel. The bike was stolen on 1968.

No listen to the experts, you would get ten feet and it would just explode and put spokes in your eyes because bicycles can't go more than 5 mph and the brakes would just melt from the friction and the tires would just catch on fire and you know there's gasoline in those things. Much safer in a hover round close to the tampons.
