Eee, lad, y're not up on yer British automotive innovation. The
four-wheeled powered bicycle was the Berkeley Frisky. My other fave was
the Ginetta 1600 R, which is what you got when you crossed a Ford Cortina
with a bespoke tapered London suit. Then there was always, gawdelpus, the
three-wheel Morgan.
