I love finding sites that have chronicled the velomobile history. Velomobile.org is such a site. My early morning surfing lead me from a Google search of images to the http://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums/showthread.php/fairing-36393.html to http://www.british-human-power.com/ to the Russian site of http://velomobile.org/. There I found the link to this wonderful post http://velomobile.org/library/articles-gl/88-2010-03-05-00-02-18 that contains pictures of velomobiles I’ve not seen in the past. Early European velomobiles. The site is in Russian but Chrome translates very well into English.
I guess sex sells in Russia also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UJ1NHc8NLY
This link has a lot of good pictures also. http://velomobile.org/library/articles-gl/87-evropean-velomobiles-middle-the-two-wars
OK just one more. http://velomobile.org/library/articles-gl/86-birthcorpvelomobile
There are many other good links off the velomobile.org site also.
How about a 1947 movie. http://www.britishpathe.com/video/pedal-car
This one is from the 1970’s I think. A serious attempt to market a velomobile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLTi6TxFNsc I found it on one of the Russian sites. Maybe not a bad design for today.
I’ve not a lot to say about the site as I’ve not spent much time reading myself. Just thought others might like to look also. I’ll spend more time tonight.
