The DIY amphibious bicycle is made using eight water gallons, which are closed on top to serve as pontoons preventing Li from drowning. Adjustable vane wheels provide the driving power. Apart from allowing Li to cross the lake, the bicycle can also be used on the road without any modifications.

U kno.. achually.. If that could be made just a bit more streetable… that would be an awsome all terain (littaraly) bike.
How cool would it be to be riding XC and instead of going “dam a lake” just crossing right over it.
