Victor Martin, known as “Handyman Vic” to those who reside in Barriere, is shown riding an environmentally friendly transportation device which he has built entirely from recycled materials.

The unit is battery powered, but can also be pedaled just like an ordinary bicycle – not  that easy though with three  people on board.

Vic and his two passengers (one his mom) were spotted riding along Barriere Town Road on the interesting home built bicycle; all complying with cycling laws by wearing protective safety helmets.

“I still have to do a lot of finishing work, like painting and other improvements,” says Vic, “But it works well already, and my dogs love to go for rides in it too.”
