BSA BMW hybrid

The bubble car part could be BMW or Isetta.

LATER: Seems the bubble cars are known as the BMW Isetta.

My wife's father had one when they were young. She is one of nine siblings! Go figure.

Horrible, doubly over. But I suppose back then it was all destined for the scrapper anyway so what the hell.

D'you reckon he made it rear wheel steer?

My thoughts exactly. These bits were probably from a scrap yard.

I don't think so. I doubt if the steering was very accurate though with about three times the normal power pushing it along.
