Those small-wheeled recumbents are the bee's knees. I want one.
It seems like they were done in Poland during the occupation, is that so?
Agreed on the small wheel recumbent...I need to look at the video again several times to see how hard it would be to make one. On the other hand I have a hundred projects i want to do so ... ... ...

AWESOME! I was completely entertained.
That's great. :) Looks like at least some of it was done in 1943 which would have been the middle of WWII in Europe. I think some of it wa German, though I'm not sure.
Well I know this thread is as old as the video but that's not polish and especially not german.
Even the description says "Něco o historii netradičních velošlapohybu v České republice z archivu ČT "
Is obviously a czech video.
Lots of old ww2 videos are like this. I am too ignorant to tell how ww2 was going on in the place at the time of the video but even if there's a war going on people don't want too much depressing stuff

may like this, it's a little old i guess, but hey, i want one : ) if for no other reason than to cut across flatland like superman!! :D
I really liked the half-recumbant tandem. The one with the chick pedaling and riding recumbent while the dude is riding upright is way cool
