The Millet Stellar

The Millet 5 cylinder rotary engined bicycle.

In 1892 Felix Millet utilised his "stellar" engine in this unusual machine. A five cylinder rotary engine was incorporated into the rear wheel. To cushion the engine against road shocks it was harnessed to a series of spring steel blades.
