Here is a brief history on cycle cars:
Cyclecars were small, generally inexpensive cars manufactured mainly between 1910 and the late 1920s.
Cyclecars were propelled by single cylinder, V-twin or more rarely four cylinder engines, often air cooled. Sometimes these had been originally used in motorcycles and other components from this source such as gearboxes were also employed. Cyclecars were half way between motorcycles and cars and were fitted with lightweight bodies, sometimes in a tandem two-seater configuration and could be primitive with minimal comfort and weather protection. They used various layouts and means of transmitting the engine power to the wheels, such as belt drive or chain drive often to one rear wheel only to avoid having to provide a differential.
The rise of cyclecars was a direct result of reduced taxation both for registration and annual licenses of lightweight small engined cars. In France, for example, a car was classed for reduced rates if it weighed less than 350 kg (772 lb).
On 14 December 1912, at a meeting of the Federation Internationale des Clubs Moto Cycliste, it was formally decided that there should be an international classification of cyclecars to be accepted by the United Kingdom, Canada, United States, France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Austria and Germany
Designed by William B. Stout, who later designed the Ford Tri-Motor airplane. Stout sold his idea to the W. H. McIntyre Company of Auburn, Indiana, which built and sold the Imp in 1913 and 1914. Like most cyclecars, the Imp was based on a narrow platform that required the passenger and operator to sit in tandem. With some European designs, the operator sat to the rear.
