Curtiss V8

Right then. A self-built longitudinal shaft-drive V8, Ormond Beach, Florida, 1907. Lace up your thigh-high boots and crack it open to 136 point summat miles per hour. Glenn Hammond Curtiss. A proper bloke. MP

Dear Mr Curtiss, is it possible you could add brakes to my bike on order, and do you have a delivery date yet, all the best crasher Nick

Is it just me or does this whole picture not bear more than a passing resemblance to Stevie Coles on his stealth bomber Bros thunderbike?

Visit the museum sometime in Hammndsport NY, they have a replica built of that bike.
