Really nice shot - what's the mad max style bike in the foreground?

I think its like a generator or something, seem to remember seeing it going once.

It is a home made snow trike. The donor bike looks british though I am am not sure what type ( it has a big C on the crank case) The back wheels are wood with bits of anlgle screwed on, must of been interesting to steer as there is no sign of any differential! Peter, how many shots did it take to make the panorama ?
Shaw Brown - 28/Sep/05
The panorama is made up of three shots - you can see the edges just to the left of Shaw and to the left of the bike.

Sorry, there is actually a total of seven shots making up this picture.

Fond memories - Did the Jackson Shea route on the Droite and the next day descended down the obvious colouir between the Droite and the Verte rather quickly ending up with a broken ankle after a wee avalanche for 1200ft.
