1913 Velo Torpille

    Newer Older

    The skin of the velo torpille made ​​the bike about 6.5 kilometers per hour faster. But at the same time this bicycle was very unstable in cross winds.

    The press release can also be from 1914. Because in 1913 Marcel Berthel drove - I thought - no speeds above 60 miles per hour.

    This Dutch newspaper photo was ever sent to me. But unfortunately I do not remember by whom.

      This one is quite famous. Anyhow the caption says it broke various records and reached a speed of more than 60 KM/hr (not mph).

      My problem is that the file name says 1914; not 1913.
