How about these for some ugly bikes?


How can I put this gently? They aren't real bikes :roll:
(The clue is the front wheel drive systems)

Actually a friend of mine designed and made a front wheel drive recumbent using a vertical chain down the fork and a clever constant velocity joint to permit steering.

Err, don't think Drossall was suggesting that they were real as such. Just ugly because of their mechanical incompetence. (and perhaps stupid, or surreal, because they belong in another world, or a bad dream...)
