coated umbrella bicycle

coated umbrella bicycle by Rolando Jr Antonio from philippines

designer's own words:

The design that I made is called "coated umbrella bicycle". This design is intended for 2 persons (1 driver and 1 passenger). This bike has a removable umbrella located at the back portion of the driver's seat. This is to give protection from the sun, rain and snowfall to both person while driving. It has also a seat provided for the passenger for his comfort and safety. Here are some of the features that describes my creation:

A. Molded, hard plastic portion of the umbrella. It has a black color for utmost protection. B. Control knob to tightened or loosen the umbrella. C. Arm chair for the passenger to place his arms while driving. D. A seat for the passenger. E. This device is a feet rack where the passenger can place his feet for safety. F. This device is a front light with switch control if they are traveling at night. G. Personalized wheel plate. It is attached in the wheel. The user can change is design depends on his preferences. H. The lower part of the umbrella. It is made of fiber glass for protection against the rain or snowfall.
