My plane bike

I just cut up an old MTB that I scored at the dump to put in the back of my Cessna.

Coaster brake and front brake gives me no cables front to rear.

Somehow I got the photos upside down. Can someone tell me how to fix that?

You need to use one of the free online image editors with a "rotate" feature that allows you to rotate the image in degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise. Just rotate your upside-down images 180 and they'll be right-side up.

BTW, that's a clever "breakapart" solution. The price was right, too.

I bought a Brompton M6L folder to carry with me in my 172. Same problem, different solution ($$$$).

When I read "plane bike" , I got excited. Then I opened the topic ...


I think I had a different concept in mind.

Very nice the only thing I flew (and hope to fly a bit more come summer) is a twin seat glider... no space in the back for bikes!

that one should go in the e-bike forum....

an mtb buddy flies around with his 29er Cannondale Scalpel lefty. Takes both wheels off and somehow gets it into his Grumman Cheetah.

my veterinarian has a '68 beech bonanza and a '72 honda ct90. he had a guy saw the down tube in 2 and weld in a hinge so it could fold and go in the luggage door. so well done, it looked factory, paint and all.

like, totally voided the bike's warranty!

the bike's handlebar had a hand clamp (factory) so the bar could pivot sideways. and the mirrors unscrewed by hand.

Rodney, that's cheating; it's gotta be a bicycle, not a motorcycle.
