This is Noel and his passion for cycling is infectious.

Noel has built this bike himself.  It has two drives, one being for a normal cycle and the other is a 10cc two stroke engine.  This looked like the engine on my chain saw and runs on 2 stroke. He gave me a demo and kept up with the cars.  To start, he set off in normal bike mode, then once moving, the engine fired and he disappeared into the distance.  Can you see two chains from the image below?

I asked Noel how much it cost. "Well" he replied, "I got most of the parts from scrap but I had to buy the engine.  It cost me 248 euros"  Noel's mate said he cycles everywhere and does not have a car. I loved it.
