Found this on EBay, a "Velorex".

Pretty Unique, it is based on a motorcycle and has a cloth covered tubular frame. To go in reverse, the two stroke engine starts and runs backwards. Gotta love the Czechoslovakian creativity!
Around the same era the Australian Zeta car also rang the engine backwards for reverse.


Technically, the Zeta was an oddity. The gearbox setup meant that the car could go as fast in reverse as it could forward, at a death-defying 60 mph! If you could keep up with the steering!
