Monsterbike is a serious bicycle

This video from YouTube user wautur shows off the Monsterbike, a brutal penny-farthing with what looks like a tractor wheel in front. According to his profile, wautur is in the Netherlands, but there's no other info on this one, sadly. Skip to 1:30 to see the bike in action.

kinda awesome (in a totally impractical stupid kinda way). But if your goal is to be noticed, this is just the ticket.

If your goal is to be noticed and actually have a plausible practical bike that could take you somewhere, I'd guess the "penny fakething" would be a better choice.

He may be noticed, but he failed to attract a crowd. Is that the culture of the country he's in or what?

Looks like a test ride right outside his garage. Would love to see some other reactions or see what things he can crush with it.
seriously, he just honked that horn of his way too many times. A 10-year old would be saying "look at me! look at me!"
Yeah Fungus we need to see some car crushing like the monster trucks...

definitely needs a steam engine (though i would imagine that would pretty much negate the whole purpose). it looks like it's a "fixie", i bet he could get it moving a lot better if it were multi-geared instead. it is quite impressive to see a wheel that large that's spoked though.

All he needs now is a basket and those plastic beads that go on the spokes.... a little flare would take this to the next level
And the tassels on the end of the handle bars!
