Not a PF bicycle since the pedals are used solely as foot pegs, but close enough.

This person did some good engineering and steampunk design work utilizing an antique gas engine, a carbide headlight run by electricity, and a fire breathing smokestack.  And it's not that tall, so getting killed on this new age boneshaker is a bit more challenging than the true Victorian era death trap.  James West and Artemus Gordon would feel right at home on it. Well, Artie would anyway. markf
