If the main horizontal cross-bar of a bicycle is extended
and back and made of larger gauge tubing, then it can
up as a bazooka or R.P.G. launcher. The cyclist can fire
their projectile whilst remaining in the saddle, standing
still or in motion. Rear firing option takes
care of the
defensive retreat mode.
The less harmfull civic version fires off a giant rubber
sucker tipped arrow or a short burst of tennis balls,
powered by compressed air.

||An RPG or a Panzerfaust <link> would be best; a LAAW could be adapted.
||The Panzerfaust has a small-diameter tube, but needs to be launched at a significant upward angle to maximise range.
||Sorta been done on a motor scooter (link). The
idea is probably workable for a bicycle but with
much smaller calibre, more like a rifle or shotgun
shell than bazooka or RPG.
||Fond memory ... about fifty years ago, I built a
kind of shoulder fired rocket launcher, using a
hollow shower curtain rod. It fired model rocket
engines. Wildly inaccurate, never hit anything I
aimed at. But at least it never hit me either. And
I never got caught by police or parents,
so I considered it a success. I even bragged to my
science teacher about it and he seemed impressed
- though my recollection might not be completely
||Something that size might be adaptable to your
idea, strapped parallel to a bicycles top tube.
Lucky for the world I didnt think of it back then...
||What I saw that gave me the idea..... see link to
