Ky Michaelson, an American inventor who abstains from consuming alcohol, has successfully developed a one-of-a-kind motorcycle that runs not on gasoline, but on beer. With this invention, he may have created the world’s first beer-fueled motorbike.
Ky Michaelson is renowned for his innovative creations, which include unconventional items like coffee machines fueled by jet engines and toilets propelled by rockets. In 1976, he played a significant role in helping Kitty O’Neil, who was deaf, achieve the title of the fastest woman on a four-wheeled vehicle, earning him the moniker “rocket man.”
He recently created an extraordinary motorbike propelled by beer, causing a global sensation. The vehicle’s conventional fuel tank was ingeniously swapped with an authentic beer barrel.
Inside the beer barrel, there resides a heating coil capable of generating heat of up to 150 degrees Celsius. This heat is used to convert the beer into steam. Subsequently, the steam is expelled through the exhaust pipe with sufficient force to generate thrust, which aids in propelling the motorbike forward.
Ky Michaelson stated that he and his son, Buddy, constructed this exceptional motorbike in their garage. The decision to embark on this project arose when they noticed an excessive rise in traditional fuel prices.
Not consuming alcohol himself, he holds the belief that this beverage could be employed in a more purposeful manner. Consequently, he decided to utilize it as a source of energy for his most recent creation.
Despite starting the engine of the beer-fueled car, Michaelson had not yet taken it out on the road. He claimed that his remarkable vehicle has a maximum speed of 240km/h and will be hitting the road soon.
