Looks a bit smarter than the one I had about 10 years ago.I got some parts from Richard Birkett and also from Kickstart or F2 Motorcycles in South London (MZ and Jawa suppliers). Left a comment as Captain Bubble.

Some of these were used as invalid carriages. So you might have hand controls, or both, as you might have two or more drivers. We have to remember that this is Iron Curtain times and a car was a desirable item to be able to own. The State could provide for disabled but the Velorex is certainly not the simplest thing for a disabled person to get in and out of. But then there disabled versions of the Messerschmitt range (all hushed up) and that is even more tricky.
