So while some Brompton owner communities are speculating about whether and when an e-bike version of the folding classic might be announced, others are already speeding along on a combustible engine? Needless to say, this is probably not recommended to be done at home – and apart from that it somehow takes the fun out of riding a bicycle, no? Impressive creativity, nonetheless.

PS: This is the DIY video – don’t miss to watch the 125cc Brompton in action.
