Does anyone have information on this rare/unique bike? It was briefly mentioned and pictured in VMCC's journal this month. Thanks, Gavin

I heard that it was the best a man can get!  :D

Sorry Gav, but if I hadn't, then someone else would have! ::)

Spoke to the owner back in 2018 at Mallory.If I remember correctly it was 3 mobylette or similar top ends all connected to a homemade crank.Think the tank is Gilera,hence (Gil)era and Moby(lette) Gillette.
