POWA Design FF.....?

An Alan Cathcart article on the POWA Design D-10 mentions an FF Yamaha and (?) another semi-enclosed moped. Never seen any pictures 'til maybe now:

2014 Discovery Channel FF video...

Just realized that this video was never shared here - just made the video public on YouTube:

Discovery Canada produced that - they were fun to work with.

Looking forward to a lot more fun (And video) of the next one...

Funny how interest and enthusiasm for innovation and invention comes from outside the industry...

The obvious direction of design - 80 years ago...

Vintagent article on some of the motorcycle related work of Louis Lucien Lepoix. No, his FF ("Moto-Horizontale") never got past the sketch and model stage, but all of the familiar features are there.

The pictures are from the book "50 Jahre technische Ästhetik" - 540 pages! https://www.lepoix-design.com/bestellformular.html

Some interesting older FFs on an interesting site:

Douglas Self's site is worth visiting - a few familiar FFs - and a few that I don't think I've seen here before. The rest of his site is a wonderful time sink...

Two-Wheeled Cars

Mystery French FF....?

Anyone know anything about this? Pictures taken from here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ByvaUY7HlsR/

FF racer at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering

Submitted the racer for entry into the Quail show (THE bike show in the USA) - it was accepted! Abhi Eswarapppa from Bike-urious wrote a very enthusiastic article on it.
