- A video has been posted online showing a man climbing onto his 'motorcycle'
- The bike has four wheels and appears to be made of scrap metals and a motorcycle engine
- His creativity wowed Mzansi social media users and the clip gathered 22 000 views
On Friday, South Africa Live shared a video of a man's self-made vehicle. The clip shows the man getting onto his four-wheel motorcycle.
While the bike has the engine and tank of a normal motorcycle, the rest of its structure differed completely.
The video was simply captioned, "some engineering talent," and it was not revealed where or when it was filmed.
South Africans were inspired by the man's creativity and the clip gathered over 22 000 views.
Sibonelo Buthelezi commented:
"He is so creative to do something like this... I salute him because he is trying and can we see it moving."
Tebogo Maako added:
"That's impressive considering what he had not much and made that out of it. Wanna see it move though."
Bennie Van Wyk said:
"Pity there's so many "clever" school kids who would rather spend the whole weekend in a dark room playing with their e-toys, play station, x-box, etc instead of trying to do what this little guy who can't afford these luxuries has achieved."
Take a look at the video below:
Briefly.co.za previously reported on another innovative young man. Mokgadi Machaba dreamt about building his own car since the age of 10.
The Grade 10 learner has now achieved that dream as his self-built car now successfully drives on the road.
Hailing from Ga-Rammutla Village in Limpopo, Mokgadi lacked the financial resources, but his determination and hard work proved key.
Mokgadi credits time spent at a local scrapyard for providing the base for him to learn about vehicle design and function. He spent approximately R5 000 on the parts for the car. The wide array of parts include an electric engine, motorbike gearbox, BMW seats and dashboard.
