From the annals of utter insanity comes this tale of Bob Maddox, the man who decided that strapping two pulse-jet engines to a Electra bicycle would be an excellent idea. Bob, we here at Ridelust salute you for making this work, but also for narrowly avoiding the Darwin Award that was a potential outcome of this experiment.
Best known as the engine that powered the V-1 “buzz bomb” that was used to bombard London, the pulse jet is a very simple engine, with usually only one moving part. Maddox’s baby is putting out around 120 lbs. of thrust, which is plenty to get this bicycle up to super-legal speeds on a backroad.
