Chennai: the Indian who makes original bikes from scraps

| Local Business News | Google News


Rajendran, from the city of Chennai in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, has been fascinated with bicycles since childhood.

Now 57 and working in a lathe shop, he channeled his passion into designing his own bikes from scrap metal.

Rajendran’s latest invention – designed to work without a chain – took him a year and a half and 60,000 rupees ($728.8; £630.2) to manufacture.

He can often be seen riding his creations through the streets of Chennai to present them to people.
