February 1938: Caterpillar Track Motorcycle

“Named the “tractor-cycle” by the inventor, J. Lehaitre, the vehicle is said to be superior to an ordinary motorcycle in its ability to climb steep and rough grades, although its speed on level ground is limited to about 25 m.p.h. Fitted with a machine gun, the cycle could be used by dispatch riders or entire military units to travel over shell-torn terrain.”
