Wyoming Inventor Builds Electric Bikes
You may have seen him riding around Torrington on a three-wheel bicycle, but chances are he wasn’t pedaling.
Marvin Hughes, a retired farmer from Morrill, Neb., has invented a motorized bicycle in his Torrington garage that takes him around town on errands without the fuss and expense of a car. Hughes made his first bike in 2006, when he put an electric motor on a three-wheel bicycle. In 2007, he made two more custom three-wheel bicycles that are driven by an electric motor.
Hughes says he invents in order to stay busy. At 83 years old, Hughes can frequently be found “tinkering” in his home and garage, inventing items like an automatic can crusher, a device to get fish worms without digging and custom table lamps.
