great caption...

Four-man bicycle is powered by five chains and has brakes on both its wheels. The bike was built by Art Rothschild (top position) who broke three ribs while learning how to ride it.

Oops, fixed that, now. Thanks. That's not the original source but 'tulenheimo' doesn't say where he found it.
