I was digging through some Finish web sites looking for examples of bikes, trikes and velo’s build of wood when I stumbled across this awesome site from post war Finland. “Human powered vehicles were almost the only way of going fast in after-war Finland. And fast we went – in many different ways! The velocars were every boy’s dreams in the late 40’s and early 50’s.” I am so glad that someone preserved this piece of velomobile history in PDF format. I think you will enjoy reading about the wooden wheels because they had no tires and other hardships of post war. This account also includes a wonderful amphibike that made it across the Baltic Sea. Take a look, I know you’ll enjoy.
