Potters Bar inventor praised by Wallace & Gromit
A POTTERS Bar man’s ingenious invention featured on hit BBC One show Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention.
Cedric Lynch’s electric motorbike was lauded by the cheese-loving plasticine pals, in the show, which aired last month.
The Heath Drive man’s zero-emission machine, which has a top speed of 120mph, was shown in action winning the world’s first zero carbon race – the TTxGP in the Isle of Mann, as previously reported in the Potters Bar Edition.
The idea for the electric motor has been snapped up by the 56-year-old’’s friend Arvind Rabadia, who together with his brother Hasmuk Rabadia had been thinking of starting a business in India.
They have now set up Agni Motors to make further-improved versions of Cedric’s motors.
