Get your bike-mowers (mowpeds) here! by ypsi~dixit

Or at least instructions on how to build same. Yes, you read that right. It's a bike AND a lawn mower (kind of like the old Saturday Night Live skit that proclaimed, "It's a floor wax AND a dessert topping.") Y. writes:
WHEN BUILDING YOUR BIKE-MOWER, keep some things in mind. The mower must be propelled forwards, but the direction of application of force on a standard pedal bike is downwards. That spells "a better workout than wrestling a bull."
Read Building Your Bike-Mower and check out the photos of this ingenious invention
Also read Steam Powered Lawn Mowers by The Self Site featuring The Leyland Steam lawnmower: late 1890s (found in the comments section of ypsi-dixit's post)
Also check out these would-be bike-mowers from the 26th Annual Ann Arbor / Saline Classic Bicycle Swap Meet (I think not!)
