Kenya: motorized bicycle

Afrigadget posts a photo of a motorized bicycle made in Kisumu, Kenya, “They hold about 2 liters of petrol and can get theoretically around 50 km a liter. They cost around 7,000 Kenyan shillings. To start the bicycle you start pedaling manually, then you flip a switch on the left handle that starts the engine. Then you have a normal motorcycle throttle control on the right side.”
