Was that fitted to a bus?

Yes, and I drove the bus at the Leyland test track, I insisted on it. I was working as a consultant to the NRDC at the time. The same drive had been used in the ram air generator on the TSR2 with which I had experience. The drive was a very novel concept, too novel for most people I think and it largely did away with a gearbox.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...
