    I must admit, that (money not being an issue) i could easily justify having replicas of these beautiful bikes made to add decor to my living room.

    Imagine how good it would feel to know you are the only person in your city, or possibly your country to have 5 cylinders of radial engine glory mounted in a bicycle frame.

    I'm sure there are people who say you can't fit a twin cylinder engine in a pushbike, but these pics are proof that with enough determination, a good 5 cylinders can be squeezed in a space where it really shouldn't go.

    Nice looking rigs, but that first one doesn't appear to be a bicycle at all. A motorcycle, definitely.

    I agree with you S.S.

    Having said that, the Verdel 5 cylinder radial engined motorbike is so close to being a motorised bicycle, that i've elected to include it in the category.
    Just add a set of pedals and it could be considered a bicycle, with the almost non existant frame structure.

    If it doesn't have pedals, it isn't a bicycle in my book.

    Beautiful bikes! The spring on the front of the Verdal seat would make me worry tho! Thanks for sharing the photos

    Certainly a very interesting variation on a motored bike - love it though.
    I've resized the image so it's easier to see.

    thanks fabian
    It must be pretty scary to be so high, if you fall from up there will probably kill you if you using those high technology helmets that they used 100 years ago:rolleyes7:

    I want one of those big Penny Farthing motorized bicycles - that's my kind of style (sitting way up high), together with the old period-correct dress sense.

    But that 5 cylinder radial engine is very, very tasty...
