Homemade Motorized Bike Pays Tribute to Motorcycles of Yesteryear





James Hough is a lawyer by profession but a gearhead at heart. He’s always tinkering with engines and building things from scratch. About a year ago, he combined the two passions to create the Houghmade Cycle Works 71, a motorized bicycle that pays homage to the racing motorcycles of the early 20th century.

“I had been looking for a project and saw online that someone had put an engine on an old Schwinn,” Hough says. “I was inspired by that and thought it would be a fun project, an outlet for my desire to build. I thought it would be fun to ride around the neighborhood and to run errands. The 100-plus mpg didn’t hurt.”
