Hail To Skelter! Sweet, Sweet Pedal Cars By Piet Hein Eek

Holy. Moley. Henk Vos asked fellow Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek to make some pedal cars for his grandkids to race. After a year, they came up with the Skelter: three speeds plus reverse, aluminum and leather and rubber construction. The sweetest pedal cars this side of the handmade Audi Auto Union C.

Eek's website shows four Skelters in existence. Spazio Rossana Orlandi's website shows one--the red one--in Milan. Anyone know how many grandkids Vos has got?
