Crafty Bulgarian Pensioner Turned an old bike into a Construction Crane

Bulgarian pensioner made a construction crane out of his 50 year-old bike. With it, he helps out at construction sites and lifts heavy materials to high floors.

Pensioner from Sandanski, Bulgaria managed to find an innovative and quite creative method to make some money on the side. The old man reworked his 50 year-old motor bike into a construction crane. To achieve this goal, he had to remove the seat and one of the wheels of the vehicle and supplied it with a rope to fully utilize the spinning power of the mechanism.

Now, the man travels through Sandanski and municipality, helping out at construction sites. His mechanism has managed to successfully lift bricks, lime and other construction materials to higher floors. Once, his makeshift crane even managed to, in a single lift, transport enough firewood to fill a big truck to the 12 floor of a building. Yet another story proves that intelligence and ingenuity can always get you out of a tricky situation.
