This is one of the more curious bits of Brit wartime eccentric ingenuity. The Welbike. A small motorised bike that would fold up and fit in a supply drop canister.

I don't know if it's the British penchant for finding beauty in terrifically ugly things, the bulldog, Vera Lynn, Birmingham, for example... But I want one.
