Bikes in History — An Occasional Series

May 12th, 2012 by Biky Nick

An exciting discovery was made during marine excavations off the coast of one of the Papadapadopolopi Islands. Embedded within the context of a dragon-bottomed Neaporian merchant vessel, which had been carrying bottulae at the time of its shipwreck in 3732 B.C.E., an astonishing find emerged when one of the bottula sherds was lifted.
The below photograph shows the intricate gearing mechanism emerging. It is currently under expensive investigation in a tax-payer-funded laboratory where they have not a clue what it could be.
Biky Nick has a pretty good idea, though, but nobody’s even asked him for his opinion.
