Now THAT looks like a cycle-car! A bit unusual perhaps? It appears to have the motorcycle motor cross-ways, but I cannot tell for sure, I think I can barely make out the profile of a V-twin behind that front screen. Several pictures I have looked at over the years have shown the cylinders going front-to-back, with the crank shaft cross-ways to a belt drive to the rear wheels. This one would probably have a friction wheel drive similar to what the Metz automobile (I jokingly use the term loosely) used. I know some cycle-cars did use that type of transmission.
It would be wonderful to see other and better photos of this car. But I suppose that is unlikely. I also hope someone here that knows more than I about them can identify the make and model of this car.
Thanks for sharing this photo!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Looks like somebody skinned their knuckles on the radiator using the hand crank...

What did I miss Wayne, you mean the were cycle- cars that were not unusual looking?
There are many British cycle-cars still running today at car shows in the U.K. I see them on Utube.
I am wondering why they have not returned since gas prices are so high.
I guess if it won't hold four in reclining seats, have A.C. and cruise 75 fully loaded they wouldn't sell.
