Pictured above is Les Weisbrod, Fenion implement .dealer, and a motor-bike which he recently completed making, using a Briggs & Straltton motor for power. The motor-bike has speed control on the handle bars, and a turn light control applied by touching the pedal of the bike. The rear wheel arrangement is strictly Mr. Weisbrod's own invention. Les constructed the motor bike from his own ideas, and the magazine "Science and Mechanics" now wanlts a picture and story about the vehicle. But before he can ride it, Mr. Weisbrod will have to geit .the necessary licenses, and inspection from the state motor vehicle department, too. We'll bet no inspector has ever inspected a vehicle such as the one above, however. In the meantime, it has had ills test runs on byways around Fenton and works fine.
