Stunting Motorcyclist Rides Built-up Motor Bike on Stilts
DEFYING the laws of gravity, a human giraffe recently thrilled spectators at an English charity carnival by riding a built-up motorcycle whose framework was so high that stilts were necessary to reach the foot pedals.
The last word in vertical streamlines, the odd machine was devised as a comedy number in a motorcycle show. Perched upon a seat raised to about three times its normal height, the rider manipulated his mount through extension controls running up to the handle bars. A common one-cylinder engine furnished the motive power.
