Bowden Spacelander Fiberglass Bicycle

From nostalgic.net:
This bike was the most radical concept of it's time. It totally epitomizes the "Space Age" with it's design. This bike looks like it was designed for NASA. It is made up of fiberglass and features built in headlights and rear fender. Designed by Benjamin Bowden, there was a prototype built and displayed in 1948. The production bikes however were made and sold only one year, 1960.
