Like it is though, the left foot would be pedalling forwards,
and the right foot would be pedalling backwards.
1. Requires a double jointed contortionist,
2. Going nowhere fast!
More Escher than Picasso?
None of this detracts from its interest as a work of art, though.

Definitely.
Only thing now, like in Classic and Veteran car concourse events where the vehicles have to be driven;
Is that he has to ride it into the arena to collect the award.
I want to see that!

I wasn't expecting that, had a busy week and just catching up. Thanks for everyone who voted the bike, I am planning to use it at The Boot and Back on March 1st, if you want a closer look. I will check those toeclips :oops: . I'm moving on to mid 20's Alcyon for my next French build, I have a soft spot for those laid back angles. Thanks again Terry
