Abstract

Man has, since early times, conceived in fanciful illusions of a device that would travel on both land and water. Such devices were soon created in the form of bicycles and were in fact patented and constructed with varying degrees of success. Amphibious cycle is a transport that can move on the land or surface of the water, both .Usually, people ride it for entertainment or exercise purpose. It applies the cycling principle or mechanism to move the bicycle. People will cycle on the pedal and this will move the propeller which is connected with it. By this, the water bicycle will move forward. The present work is intended to substantially reduce, if not obviate, certain of the more prevalent disadvantages and shortcomings explained hereinabove with respect to prior art aquatic cycles. Specifically, this work is directed to an aquatic cycle which is of amphibious capability and which may be as easily and reliably operated on land as on water. In the present thesis, attention is focused on developing a new product which is named as Amphibious Bicycle The present work is intended to substantially reduce, if not obviate, certain of the more prevalent disadvantages and shortcomings explained hereinabove with respect to prior art aquatic cycles. Specifically, this work is directed to an aquatic cycle which is of amphibious capability and which may be as easily and reliably operated on land as on water. In this paper an attempt was made to design and fabricate a model of amphibious bicycle which will allow smooth transition from water to land during transportation. After that several test has been performed on the fabricated model to check it feasibility in real life.
