Introducing the Electric Mini-Farthing

Apparently, the world has a need not just for penny-farthings but also for electric penny-farthings. Bonus: it's made of carbon-fiber and comes at the reasonable price of only $5,000!

It doesn't appear you can pedal it, in which case, it's an electric motorcycle rather than an electric bicycle.
