... looks like the riding mechanic is trying to kiss a certain part of his anatomy goodbye
Those look like modern motorcycle radials. It just goes to show what sort of side-load performance can be got from them. It gives me hope for the Widgeon-VW (my chain-drive idea).

Looks like the Hulot car.
I've used Avon Gangsters (rears) on my Avion reverse trike for 15 years. Never a problem.

We've seen this car before. Le Dauphin. Marc pics...
J.J. pic... just goes to show you don't need the newest ,stickiest tire on asphalt to lift a wheel on a Morgan!
BSA YW21 for sale in New Zealand at the moment. Not a bad price either - I must say I was rather tempted
The rear of Stu Hillborns car?
One of my all time favorite cars. Was at GNRS last weekend. Hope they cleaned the drool off of it, sorry.
Here is Gasballon's picture of ADE and his JAPPIC recreation.
At 16K I'd say that was a steal.
yes and that's 16k NZ dollars which is about the price of a big mac in the US.

Zundap Janus seating demonstration:
Any frontal views of this one?
Here you go Murphy...
What a bizarre engine. A balancer's nightmare. Two rods on one side and a single rod on the other. Special pistons and rods not interchangeable. I guess it was just to eliminate the offset. Wow, always amazed at what people come up with.

Thanks Bob! That engine design would eliminate the rocking couple.
Sorry to say but it couldn't possibly work as drawn as the two conrods would strike the lower edge of the barrel as shown in the diagram. You would need to interpose a crosshead like they have on steam engines...
A better arrangement was devised by George Lanchester who used two crankshafts and six conrods on a horizontally opposed engine to make a vibrationless car engine in the late 1890s... No primary or secondary imbalances and no rocking couples either, but expensive to make of course, hence it didn't last...
I took that photo - there's quite a few more here
