1913 Scripps-Booth Bi-Autogo

This is without a doubt the one of the dumbest ideas in auto history, being right up there with
the Lyatt Helica.  A 3,000 lb motorcycle with a V8 and training wheels, take that O.C Choppers !
And what is up with that "radiator"?  Among the Scripps "firsts" (most of which ended up as
"lasts") was purportedly the first V8 in a Detroit car.  What I can't get over is how much the 
passenger compartment bodywork resembles a kids toy peddle car from the 60's.
