How about a Malvern Star?

I hope those are high pressure tires. Get a load of the steering.

I've seen that picture before at some time and have to admit I think it is an interesting design. I'm not sure it is practical and why would you want both people to steer? That's like having two steering wheels in a car, which really is not a very good idea.

As far as getting my hands on a Malvern Star, I'd love to add one to my collection one of these days.
