DSC03942.jpg (87687 bytes)  DSC03941.jpg (122227 bytes)  This interesting gadget is a supplemental power device for a bicycle.  Mounted along side the rear wheel (a tire mounts on the rim of the disc seen in the left photo) and it could be lifted of the ground when power was no needed or lowered when you came to a hill.  That is the story we heard at the show.  I went to the B&S website just now to see if there was more information about the merger and found this great illustration.  Apparently it was made to power a four wheel vehicle.  http://www.briggsandstratton.com/corp/about_us/history.aspx Originally built by another company which was bought out by Briggs and Stratton in the early 1900's.
