One bike, eight friends

Published: June 9, 2012

FAISALABAD: Shaikh Heera of Faisalabad couldn’t travel with all of his friends together on his motorcycle. Perturbed, he decided to make a new one himself, one that would accommodate them all comfortably.

Heera, a young man hailing from the Samundari district of Faisalabad, machined a motorcycle which is 11-feet in length and can accommodate up to eight adults or 12 children. Heera said he was inspired to create his modified motorcycle after watching a Bollywood movie, but the motorcycle in the movie could only accommodate four people unlike his 11-feet long monster.

Heera added that it was his dream to build such a vehicle, and expressed pleasure over how he could now travel with all of his friends together.

The motorcycle’s 9-feet long frame was made locally. It has eight shock absorbers to offer a bump free journey for its riders.  It is powered using a double chain. The mechanic who helped modify the motorcycle said that it took him 15 days to complete the task.

Previously, an enthusiast from Gujranwala had created a bike that could seat six adults and 10 children.

    This is how Honda etc. started as a company. They first used to manufacture motorcycles or motorized bicycles. Then it moved to small powered vehicles and then to the name brand Honda motors.

    When will Pakistan have a Honda motors ? We know that India has a TATA and it is also able to have the cheapest car in the world (the tata nano?). If India being a poor country can do it so can we ? can’t we?

    Authorities should not allow him to ride this motor bike in public. Its too dangerous. The guy is playing with lives of his friends and physical laws of motion. At some turn, they will all end up dead. Secondly, this circus will not stop at one motor bike. Other people will manufacture similar motor bikes and we will see them killing its riders and other innocent people.

    This is very good. We should be encouraging everyone to create and experiment. If people want to emulate this gentleman they should study mechanical engineering (cars, motorbikes), electrical engineering (for cars , bikes of the future) and aero astro (if you want to do space shuttles like spacex/ NASA).

    In the end innovative products will come if you combine your education in sciences (physics) and engineering (mechanical, aero astro, electrical , chemical etc.) and arts (design, concept, out of the box thinking) and business (MBA etc. to run a business perhaps). The need of the hour is education of course and for people to create products so that they can love one another.
