I`m a bit scared of air tank, but you have to put it somewhere I suppose.

Scuba divers wear them on their back, don't hear of too many issues with that, great concept, not sure if it'll take off but I reckon it's got more merit than the electric options

 I am a scuba diver.

the point I make is: As it is a chook chaser, and a chook is designed to go over things, and does bottom out occasionally, I would hate to see a rupture.

I don't like how that valve hangs out either.  It'd be better to keep the tank as low as you can, but with such a big task is obviously difficult to reengineer the bikes frame and suspension To suit

Wait, I've got it! Let's put a 2-stroke petrol engine in it to drive a compressor.

Imagine the benefits if you have a flat tyre! Very Happy

Plus you could compress some air for KERS.

I'm not convinced but maybe as a short distance commuter. Idea

I am a diver, I see the abuse handed out to air tanks and they can handle it. If they are given the proper testing regimen there is not much else you can do and are no more dangerous than sitting astride a machine where a highly flammable liquid is deliberately ignited to provide a controlled explosion.

Diving tanks are a lot more resilient than air tanks on heavy vehicles, even with the battering they take from stones etc they still rarely fail

Has no one seen the real benefit of this drive system?
Strap on ya tank and weight belt and head out for a hoon around the sea bed.

Good idea
Could have military applications if you used a re-breather style kit to hid the bubble trail

Or carry a big pin to pop all the bubbles  Laughing

I actually think it is a better idea than electric powered  Very Happy
