Historical Photos of the Bizarre Two-Wheeled, Self-Balancing 1967 Gyro-X Vehicle

quote [ In 1967 Alex Tremules, contracted by California-based Gyro Transport Systems, built the single-seated Gyro-X. The automobile had just two wheels, one in front and one in the back and, as the car’s name implies, it utilized a built-in gyroscope to remain upright when moving. ]

Agreed. It is basically a motorcycle with training wheels and the world's most uncool cowling.

I'd love these as a class for electrics at Isle of Man.
