Adewale Quoyim Converts Bicycle To Motocycle
During an interview with BBC News Pidgin, Adewale narrated how he turned his imagination into reality after people told him he cannot use a generator engine as a motorbike engine.
The Senior Secondary School 3 (SS3) student said his father encouraged him to push further with his planned innovation when people said he can’t make it work.
The young man, who started learning mechanical work when he became an apprentice at the age of 10, revealed that the thought of converting his bike came up when he needed a motorbike but could not afford one.
According to him, he dismantled a generator set and made half engine of the set to be sitting at the pedal, while the tank is placed between the bicycle seat and the handrail.
The teenage boy revealed that he spent a total of N30,000 for the conversion and bought the engine as a scrap. He added that the conversion was hard because there was nobody to ask for direction.
