This is a screen capture from the Wen Winders movie Bis Ans Ende der Welt "Until the End of the world" probably the best 480 minutes of Science Fiction you'll ever see. My ? is, what is the name of the two vehicles shown in the image, I've done an extensive search on the net for the info and have even gone as far as contacting Wen Wender's production company, they didn't know and suggested I could find them on the end credits, unfortunately I only have access to a German copy of the film and was hoping the NEWTEK Group Mind could help me out.

Thanks.

Yep that's it, or more accurately a newer model.

Thanks.

Yup, I recall seeing about these in a motorcycle magazine over here in the UK many many years ago. Not sure I could stop worrying about if those stabilisers would lower when stopped at lights though. :p

Until the End of the World is a great movie. I have an imported director's cut on DVD. It's the Italian 4-disc edition which has no English subtitles and unfortunately (for me) a few segments of the movie is with Italian dialogue which I don't understand. It doesn't hamper the overall understanding of the movie though.

Sadly I'll probably never see an English version released in the U.S. I believe due to music licensing problems here. The RIAA needs to get their collective heads out of their ***.

Not to worry I saw a video in the 90's showing a driver laying one down on it's side, then through centrifugal force and his own leaning weight, right him self up, very cool.

As far as i remember its not very comfortable for the driver, you can see it in the pictures that there is not much room for the legs. Nevertheless nice idea.
