these types of bikes with that car-like shifter and the banana seat were popular here (=gernamy) around ~1978-1980. They were called either "Bonanzarad" or "Highriser". The popularity was short-lived when buyers found out they looked cool but were a pain to ride for more than 5 minutes - too heavy, awkard seating position. (have i heard someone yell "Fatbike"? thought so). I got one ~1980 as a confirmation gift and sold it on a few weeks later.
