I will check that out, still doesn’t make the bike appealing to the eye. Love to see the history though 😎

Spacelander was the Bicycle of the Future, 1946-1960

Or so the say in all the hype of this failure. After trying to sell this crazy idea for 14 years a few hundred were finally made and sold. I grew up in the late 50's early 60's and I can say without a doubt that I and any of my friends would never be seen riding something like that.

Nice work on a rare, significant bike! Like it or not, it was a very forward thinking design of the time.

Too bad it wasn't a balloon tire bike.🤷‍♂️ If I stumbled onto one for a great deal I'm sure I would enjoy having fun with it for a while.
