The Real Thing
This cool paper model of the Fend Flitzer invalid Vehicle was create by Japanese designer Takayoshi Ichiyama. The Fend Flitzer was a three-wheeled invalid carriage designed and built by Fritz Fend. The Flitzer established many of the basic concepts on which Fend's later Messerschmitt Kabinenroller microcars were developed. In 1948, Fend, a former aeronatical engineer and technical officer in the Luftwaffe, began production of a tricycle invalid carriage in his workshop in Rosenheim, Germany. The tricycle had a front wheel that was steered by handlebars and powered by a mechanism actuated by pushing back and forth on the handlebars. Shortly afterward, it was offered with a 38 cc (2.3 cu in) Victoria two-stroke proprietary engine normally used for motorizing bicycles. Fend then designed the Flitzer, a larger, better-enclosed invalid carriage. It was designed from the start to be powered by a gasoline engine. Whereas the earlier tricycle was both steered and powered by a single front wheel, the Flitzer had a pair of front wheels linked to the steering mechanism and a powered rear wheel. - Wikipedia

O Fend Flitzer foi um carro de três rodas projetado e construído por Fritz Fend para ser usado por pessoas debilitadas ou amputadas, visto que haviam muitas pessoas nessa situação após a segunda Grande Guerra. Este veículo estabeleceu muitos dos conceitos básicos sobre os quais foram desenvolvidos todos os outros mini veículos vindos depois. Em 1948, Fend, um ex-engenheiro aeronatical e diretor técnico da Luftwaffe, começou a produção de um carro triciclo em sua oficina na Alemanha. O triciclo tinha uma roda dianteira e usava um guidão ao invés de volante.
