    Needs a whistle.
    I noticed the big propane tank sitting on the ground. That would be a challenge to mount if you plan to ride it instead of just watching it run on a stand.

    That looks like more trouble then fun. I don't know how a comfortable cruise would be possible with that kind of load. It should be classified as a "fat mans exercise bike" and be kept on the stand

    It must have been a nightmare to be driver of such a steambike. Do the judgement yourself, 47 sec. inside the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9KXPyXVXaw&feature=related

    Correct ...I think the propane tank, standing on the ground are only for demonstration usage.

    I been trying to get over this cold I have, but I expect riding with the steam in front, it would be swept back at you while underway. Go out riding to use its humidifier to get better:)

    PS, heck ride it doing donuts in the living room!

    If that not works, try a steambath for the blocked nose. Following link ( the first two min. ) shows how to ...unfortunately, an expensive way to fix it ;-D
