I have no idea what it is but I like it.
Looks like something from an old Buck Roger serial
The bile is a Killinger and Freund Motorcycle designed and built by a group of German engineers in 1935. See the attached reference: http://greyfalcon.us/Killinger%20and%20Freund%20Motorcycle.htm
Very interesting looking machine.

I think it's a German Killinger & Freund motorcycle from the mid/late 30's. They made an updated version of the odd Megola, a 39 cui 5 cyl radial engine front wheel driven motorcycle from the 20's. The K&F had a three cylinder two stroke radial engine. Production didn't really take off before the war according to Wikipedia. Both had some type of planetary gearing to allowed the crank shaft to turn faster than the wheel.
Yes, that is what I was to say.
Amazing Front wheel drive motorcycle

It is an art deco design for this a Megola Motorcycle
So that is what has been lying in pieces in the corner of my workshop all these years.
If you get a flat tire you would have to disassemble the bike to change it.
Looks like it should be rocket powered.
