hahaha, it sure does. I wonder how many CC's that motor has though...2 cylinder....

The motor mounting on the Thomas....I don't get it.

They all are a little weird...I just posted it because I was looking at early "motorycles" and realized they were "motorized bicycles".

We have marched ahead into the past.

I like it.

Hey, sometimes the people in the past got it right. I think I heard that in the early 1900's people actually preferred electric cars over gasoline.

Very cool. Seems like 1903 was "the" year. all sorts of great bikes.

"We have marched ahead into the past" Great thought Joe.

The Thomas motor looks wider so for belt alignment and crank/leg clearance, it seems, they mounted it forward and to the side. Curious!
