Survival moped armed with weapons


The Motoped Survival Bike is like a Swiss Army knife on a moped made for “black ops”.
It’s a standard moped, but it has so many extras, it has far more uses than a typical commuter bike.
Mopeds are motorised bicycles ands this is no different. The minimalist bike can be powered by any small four-stroke engine and also has downhill mountain bike mechanicals on a rugged, custom frame.
But here is where it gets interesting. Mounted to the moped are a crossbow, a four-litre gas pack, a survival shovel, a tomahawk, a harpoon, a fixed blade saw, a lighting system, carabiners and climbing rope, a flashlight, a multifunction knife/light, two multi-tools, a neck knife, and a bike mount for your smartphone.
You assemble the bike yourself and you can use any of the Honda mini trail bike or moped engines. Prices will vary, according to how you want to arm your moped, but the basic bike is $2000 in the US.
And then go hunting … or wait for the apocalypse!
