Anyone here own a funny frame/funny frame owners

Hey C&V, just out of curiosity as I don't own one myself, but does anyone own a vintage tt/funnyframe? I've seen some vintage roadies riding around the local known bike paths, but I've never seen a funny frame in person.

Where are you guys at

I do have a Gazelle Champion Mondial Time Trial. When I come to it the bike will be setup a bit in line with fixie fashion, except for that it won't be a fixed gear. Full c-Record it is going to be. Setting it up in an unconventional way for me opens perspectives on actually being able to ride it.

I've shown these two before but here they are again. I built them up just for the fun of it.
