Small but full sized
« on: January 12, 2020, 03:40:51 pm »
Here are a couple of true beauties that are sized such that some of us might actually be able to consider housing them, if not actually affording them.

First up here is a steam bicycle, exceptionally well engineered and "space age" built to an amazing degree of efficiency.

Second is something that I'd rather prefer myself, and it is also very efficient and nicely built, but to a far more traditional style.

Hope you enjoyed them both!

Excellent thanks for showing.
I too prefer the boat for its traditional style but the bike shows how steam can be enhanced by technology
Cheers Da e.
Cheers. Dave.

What a wonderful old contraption that buggy is! Reminds me a bit of Phil's (Bugsy's) tricycle.

I'll still take the boat though  ....    in my dreams !!!    ;c)
