  • Short Summary

    An novel bicycle that can carry an entire family.

  • Description

    Paris, France.

    Title: "THE OMNI-BIKE. A queer craft, but it gets you there and back ... said the inventor".

    M/S of a tricycle-type of contraption parked by the curb of a Paris street, a man sits in a seat in front of the handlebars, a woman sits next to him and a little girl with a dog sits on a bench at the back.

    M/S of the family travelling down the street, the bike is powered by conventional pedals and by two hand-operated rotating levers. Various point of view shots from a moving car looking down at the omnibike as it speeds along.

    M/S of the family sitting in the bike outside the gates to a park. C/U of the dog sitting in the bike - a very cute Jack Russell.
