For youngsters this seems to be a great idea.

What to do with an old Makita drill...

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Looks like something straight out of Appalachia.

There is a 4 wheel electric bike I see advertised occasionally that looks similar to the old original "horseless carriages". It is advertised as a 4 wheel pedal bike with the electric option. $$$$$$

I don't like the idea of no pedals. Battery runs out, then you have to walk the thing back home. Mopeds have pedals for a reason. Besides, there are other ways to power a bike with a drill, and still keep the pedals. Personally my no pedals solution would be a Harley.

If you have to explain a Harley to someone, they aren't going to understand it anyway.

This person's bike has pedals and but he still carried SPARE batteries for his 28V Dewalt cardless drill.
Watch him replacing the battery in the video.

No thanks, I'd rather have something gas powered, and with. I even has pedals, but I'd imagine a gas tank that size, with an engine that size, would keep it going for several days. And a spare gallon of gas will cost a whole lot less than a spare battery. A lot more available too.

Or, lose the pedals, but a lot more class.

And toss in one more, with pedals, gas, and lots of class.

Or, just go with a trike, no pedals, fantastic class.
