Weird it certainly is!
Would it be at all possible to see any more photos; frame lugs/junction points, rear hub and the whole transmission shebang?
Is it collapsible? It looks like some of the frame tubes are removable, but difficult to see any details on that photo.
ok @bike, keep us posted.
I agree that it definitely looks European, at least it gives that vibe. The whole pressed steel (or it could be cast aluminium) sort of chainstay section reminds me of early motor scooters from Italy or France, the stem also.
Bars look American to me, but again hard to see.
The center of gravity looks off, like it would be hard to avoid wheelies. It's hard to imagine it was manufactured like that. It looks like a homemade job, maybe a clown bike? I can picture a gag where a second clown is riding on the front, jumps off, and the other one goes flying backwards or continues riding doing a wheelie.
I agree with Brian above. Center of gravity would lend itself to being ridden mainly on the rear wheel as a Unicycle mostly , as a wheelie machine- but leaning forward would put you on the front of two wheels. I think this is some kind of Clown vehicle- Interesting... I `m too old to ride one though....-------Cowboy
