Seen at Ephrata Ride-In, May 2013

There were easily 700-800 motorcycles at the Ephrata "First Sunday" event yesterday; here a few that caught my eye.  The (sorta) Moto-Guzzi "whatsit?" at bottom stole the show. (As always, click on images to enlarge.)
Water Buffalo anyone?

Largely hand-fabbed 58cc Moto-Guzzi powered moped meets mountain bike meets board track racer meets steam punk. Full of great touches like leather tank hangers, braided cable covers, brass bits and coiled copper fuel line.

Hand-made tank
Yes, somehow it's street legal
Coolest helmet at the event hands-down!
What, you don't measure speed in PSI? The owner tells me he's going to make this a working speedo; should be a doodle as he's a watchmaker by trade.

I think my favourite is the mini-car with the driver looking at you as if he doesn't understand why you are taking his picture.

Do you happen to know how it was built?

I didn't get the chance to look it over closely. I've seen photos on the 'Net of something that looks vaguely similar, a kit made by Malone in England, using a Yamaha V-Max engine.
