Steamcycle1
Jim writes – “This project involves restoration of a rather rare breed of machine. Very few steam-powered motorcycles are known with the majority of historic “steamcycles” residing in museums (e.g., the “Field” steam motorcycle). There has been very little commercial exploitation of applying steam power to two-wheeled vehicles, so most “steamcycles” that come to light are one-of-a-kind prototypes built by hobbyists and steam enthusiasts. The steamcycle restored here is no exception. It was custom built by Arthur “Bud” Hubbard of Monroe, CT during the early 1970′s. “ [via] – Link.
