It was a nifty idea: a two-wheeled car that, thanks to its narrow cross-section, would save fuel and also increase room on the road. The Lane Motor Museum has restored the Gyro-X and made it functional again. Would you drive one?

I'd love to build one of these!

Well, I can put you in touch with an engineer in Pisa that can fix you right up! Be careful what you wish for. :-)

In reply to DavidLMM :
 

Thanks for the offer David! I watched the videos & animations about the car a few months ago, which gave a good overview of how the systems worked, but not quite enough detail to build a replica from scratch.
