Graeme Obree, nicknamed 'The Flying Scotsman', has said that he wants to become the world's fastest pedal-powered human. To achieve the feat, he need to beat the world record of 82.819mph set by Canadian Sam Whittingham.
Speaking to his fans online, Obree said that the production of the bike was time-consuming, as "many components are fabricated by hand".
He added to the Daily Record: "I used an old pot that I had burned so I won't miss it - it was ideal for what I needed.
"I wanted a light, flat surface for my shoulder supports and it was just sitting under my sink."
He was previously known for beating the world hour record in 1993 using a bike made from washing machine parts.
The bike is planned to be ridden almost horizontally, with pedals inches from the ground.
Obree will be testing the contraption on the roads soon.
