hoooo Opel Kapitaen .... that was a very expensive car at the time.... I bet the German Gentleman started out with quite a bunch of money in the bike biz...just to loose his shirt on this venture....
Interesting how times have changed... or maybe not....
still a handfull of people who think they got it now and have reinvented the wheel ... and thats a good thing

good find ss

would be cool to have a bike like that on the Interbike booth for example ....

Cycling with your hands (almost) behind your back is not going to be to everyone's taste, maybe he didn't do the customer focus groups before investing.

Something about it reminds me of the Fish bike.

I haven't seen the take apart Moulton in this video where it wraps around the bottom bracket.
