Rocking Horse Bike: John Guy (video)

Bikes Fun & Games

John Guy’s Rocking Horse Bike has a single horn and is inspired by Charlie the Unicorn. A galloping motion is created by the assymetrical mounting of the wheels, which John demonstrated at Maker Faire Bay Area 2011. This contraption might just take you all the way to Candy Mountain.
