Unusual Human Powered Vehicles 


       This site is for homebuilders, inventers and those who are just plain entertained by "outside-the-box" thinking.  It contains pictures of some unusual HPVs and a  wacky patent  page.  A  companion site contains links to many others and to hundreds of HPV patents.  I hope you find something of interest.  [Last revised 4/16/05  -   inputs are welcome.]
