The Survival Bike by Motoped

Ever needed to bug out of town in a hurry? Wanted to travel trails and terrain where even a motorcycle might not be totally practical? Well, you don’t have to wait for the zombie apocalypse to get a bike that would prepare you for one. The Survival Bike by Motoped might be the ticket for you. Marketed as “your tactical blank canvas”, it’s a utilitarian, military-inspired motorized mountain bike outfitted with a customizable universal rack that accepts a various bolt-on mounts, harnesses, and fitments so you can pack what’s necessary to you.

A primary fuel tank plus the added fuel from two side-mounted tanks will take you 400 to 500 miles without a fill-up. If you really do need to run from those blood-thirsty zombies having a range like that could be good. Or, maybe a bit more practical, if this was in the back of an RV on a Baja surf trip and you ran out of gas (we’ve done it before), this really could be a life saver.
Each can be purchased as either a fully-assembled bike that’s ready to ride (including stock 49cc engine), or as a partially assembled kit (supply your own engine), or as a KD box-kit you assemble yourself from the ground-up and bolt your own engine onto.
