Motoped Survival Bike, Now You Can Beat The Zombies Too!
Motoped is a downhill mountain bike that’s mounted on a custom frame and powered by a 49cc four-stroke pit bike engine. It’s shipped in the form of a DIY motorized bicycle kit that was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter last year. Now I know what I want for Christmas.
Officially called Motoped Survival Bike: Black Ops Edition, the new vehicle features the same basic components as the original bike, just reinforced with a crap ton of survivalist accessories. For hunting, the moped comes with a Barnett Recruit Compound Crossbow for shooting game from a distance, along with a United Cutlery M48 Hawk Harpoon for penetrating targets at a short distance. A pair of jerry cans hang along the sides for carrying extra fuel, with a Blackburn X6 for lighting your way in the dark. Other accessories include a tomahawk axe, a neck knife, a survival shovel, a fixed blade saw, climbing rope with heavy-duty carabiners, a GPS/iPhone bike mount on the handlebars, flashlights, and a variety of multi-tools.
Since it comes with an off-the-shelf mountain bike pedal and gearing system, you can turn off the motor and stay mobile without making any sound. Perfect for creeping on animals during hunts and avoiding the attention of whatever predatory creatures lurk in the woods.
A DIY kit for the Motoped Survival Bike (sans engine) will be launching soon. Price starts at $1,999. Price is not that steep for the level of survival it provides.
