Nope. That's a moped that reminds me of the solex.

A motorized bike! I'm surprised nobody's thought of that before.
Oh wait, they have...

The 1885 Daimler-Maybach Petroleum Reitwagen was the first internal combustion motorbike. Steam driven bikes had been around since 1868.
I Googled steampunk, I'd never heard of that before. I saw a movie called The Golden Compass that it reminds me of. Am I on track or way off with that connection?

This is what I mean by steampunk (it's a steampunk-ified laptop):
Steampunk = modern technologies reimaigned with 19th century engineering/aestetics.
