THREE-WHEEL “BIKE” DRIVES LIKE AN AUTO (Feb, 1936)

THREE-WHEEL “BIKE” DRIVES LIKE AN AUTO

Automobile, tricycle, and bicycle features are combined in an odd vehicle recently introduced. The “driver” sits in a comfortable chair seat and propels the car by a bicycle-type sprocket gear connected with the two front wheels. The machine is steered by the single rear wheel, turned by means of an automobile-type steering gear.

    I bet she sweats through that dress while peddling those big wheels.

    Brakes?

    Just add a plywood body, and you’ll have a velomobile.

    jayessell: Those high heels would be used as a brakes, a lot of material to ablate on paved roads and superior anchor-like stopping power on gravel.

    The only ‘car’ a woman should ever be allowed to drive.
