Traveling with a group of tourists, you see the same thing everyone else always sees and has already seen before. When you travel alone, you might miss things you would have enjoyed, but sometimes you find really cool little places, like this collection of bicycles and motorcycles in France. Christian Pelletier was motoring around and came across this museum off the beaten path with some interesting old bicycles and motorcycles.
The bicycle above has an interesting front drive system which seems to be operated by rocking the handlebars somehow, fore and aft maybe or rather up and down? It’s pretty hard to see how it works from the photo but it’s pretty ingenious.
Then there was this woodgas powered motorcycle, something used during WWII when gasoline was rationed. Maybe not a high performance option but it’s amazing what you can use to run an internal combustion engine.
Lots of other cool stuff at the link. Thanks for the tip, John!
