The DIY bicycle generator is certainly an innovative machine. While it might one of the first of its kind, other inventors have had similar ideas when it came to bicycles. In fact, one of the earlier models of this machine was both ludicrous in design and size: The penny farthing.

Of course the creativity did not end there. Over the years, people have been coming up with increasingly larger and more astonishing bicycles. This infographic provided by Cykelvalg shows you some of the largest bicycles ever created.

Some of these designs are quite ingenious, allowing an entire family to fit on a single bicycle. Others like the T-Rex bike and the Butterfly are a little more confounding. Despite their curious appearances, however, the inventors of these machines certainly need to be applauded for their creativity.

It would be a great experience to get a chance to ride even one of these fantastic machines.
