Smokey Stover's Foo Mobile built by Jim Herner

I had the opportunity to ride in this amazing two wheel car, which was handbuilt by Jim Herner in 2008. Based on the cartoon Smokey Stover by Bill Holman in 1938, the first "real" vesrion was built in 1963 by Pete Scholtter.

 

How does it work? Hint.....it does not use a gyroscope.
