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...

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!

Some interesting older FFs on an interesting site:

Two-Wheeled Cars

Mystery French FF....?

Anyone know anything about this? Pictures taken from here:

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.
