Not really correct to describe the Bugatti bicycle as a 'Moultonesque space frame'. It seems simply to replace each tube in a conventional frame with four
   small tubes. It is difficult to see why. There was also a Carlo Bugatti bicycle which is even odder. It has a small front wheel and a short wheelbase. I am sure there must have been a reason for such a design but Bugatti-esque elegance was not it. As an example of the master's design flair applied to bicycles, his twin overhead cam Roots supercharged cycle motor hits the mark, but I suppose that saving muscular effort even in so exquisite a fashion is off-topic.
