If you look closely at the HMK 561 Ultralight Motorbike, you may notice that it has no spokes, chains or pedals. Now you're probably thinking, as I am, without all that stuff, a bicycle is just a fancy night stand. Well, not only does this beast work, a prototype has already been built.

Designed by Ralf Kittmann, the HMK 561 Ultralight Motorbike contains electrical properties that basically power all of the bike's movements. Don't ask me how. The frame is made up of highly conductive Carbon Fiber, which makes the bike one big power distribution network. Pretty hi-tech stuff. Stats for Power-Generating Bicycles Trending: Older & Buzzing
