There is no end to the ingenuity of ordinary South Africans and their ability to make amazing things using few resources. A man recently stunned Mzansi with his customised bicycle, which he redesigned to look like a mini Ford bakkie.
With admirable attention to detail, the man even added license discs to the makeshift windscreen and added the Ford signage for a more authentic feel.
A video of his ride was shared on social media and shows a fascinated passerby inspecting the vehicle, noticing that it even had indicators.

Facebook users were impressed with the man’s efforts and expressed their appreciation for his creativity. Many suggested he would make an incredible engineer if his studies could be sponsored, while others added that he must continue pursuing his dreams because his talent will take him far, Briefly.co.za found.
Kyle Reddy enthused:
“This is where dreams start don't worry my friend you will drive the real one soon keep pushing keep dreaming most importantly keep hustling!”
Another user, Sipho Sebela, joked that the man decided on the wrong car model because now that his bike is a Ford, he’ll never stop having engine troubles.
Australian Facebook user, Mitchell Celantano posted with his friend that everyone in South Africa had one of these in their garage. His friend, Nick Spano, laughed and replied that they definitely had to visit the eclectic country.
“Also, we're going to South Africa, the place is just too strange to not go see first hand,” wrote Nick.
