Here's a mystery quadricycle whose appearance is similar to the Kar-Bike, but seems to have little in common with it.

What makes it particularly unusual is that it's a chainless / shaft-drive.

The hubcaps have a double W in the centre.

Nothing in common with the Gearcycle either, apart from the shaft drive.

I'll update its photos after it arrives next week -

I own an antique shop in NC. I have a customer with this exact bike. His family purchased it in 1948 from Montgomery Ward.
