In four wheeler the engine is mounted in front of vehicle thus for transmitting power shaft drive is use to transmit power from engine to rear wheel. Such idea was used in bicycle that means the shaft is use in place of chain. This project is developed for rotate the back wheel of bicycle with propeller shaft. In bicycle the chain and sprocket mechanism is use. The larger sprocket is mounted at place of paddle and small sprocket is mounted at the rear wheel and a chain is mounted over it. In case of bicycle the bevel gear is connected to paddle i.e. crank shaft and a propeller shaft is place on it. At the rear side another bevel gear is attach and the propeller shaft is place. Thus in this case power is transmitted also the reversed motion can also be obtained from it which cannot obtained from sprocket and chain mechanism. But this project was unsuccessful because of various problems like continuous paddling.
