What a creation  :o
Wow, with this slim tiny single front wheel it must be a torture to drive with all the engine weight on it.
And you´d better not leave the tarmac not to sink in instantly!


Amen to that!  Geez!...and they thought the Gugnot steamer was front-heavy!

Not bad at all. 1 ZS (Ziege Stärke) with a spare motor.  And with the opposite concept of today's plug-in rechargeable EVs, they mow the lawn when they're not in use.  Hmmm....I wonder if that ol' boy patented that idea.   :lmao:

When the last petrol reserves will be emptied we may have to think about this concept.  :'(
On planet earth there are many millions of encaged cattle, pigs etc. and everybody complains, that they do not have enough space to move around.... ;)
