Velocipede Bicycle History and Facts


Velocipede is a term that describes human powered land vehicle with two or more wheels that has managed to become a synonym for the word bicycle in the
early history of those travel devices. However, even though the word “velocipede” was most famously used to describe balanced bicycle designs that had
pedals, the earliest appearance of the world Velocipede was tightly connected with the devices known as dandy horses, draisienne or hobby horses that were
originally invented as by the German Baron Karl Drais. Dandy horse bicycles featured very simple design where users propelled themselves by manually
reaching with legs to the ground where they could walk, run and then rest their legs while the force propelled simple bicycle forward.

How to Get Pre-1980 Vehicle History Report

by Contributor

Today, it is easy to enter the vehicle identification number (VIN) and get a history report on our vehicle. However, prior to 1980, it was a different story. It was difficult to get accurate information without a standard system. For a vehicle made before 1980, you must have very specific information to obtain a history report on your vehicle, and you must know where to turn.

Step 1

The vehicle identification number (VIN) was not standardized until 1979-80. The system uses a 17-number system to identify each individual vehicle manufactured. Before this system was implemented, manufacturers used VINs that were unique to their company only.

Step 2

For pre-1980 VIN information, the best source for information is the original manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer, such Ford, Chevrolet or Chrysler, to determine what specific information you will need to obtain the vehicle history report.

Step 3

Once you find out

Automobile History – Top 10 Interesting Facts


Automobiles have been around since as early as 1769, when the first steam engine powered automobiles were produced. In 1807, Francois Isaac de Rivaz designed the first car that was powered by an internal combustion engine running on fuel gas.
