The StreetSurfer - which was made by an Australian firm - has a traditional frame and rear wheel, but four front wheels.

The makers claim having four points of contact at the front means the bike handles in a completely different way.

StreetSurfer spokesman Mark Palmer said: "The bicycle has effectively been the same since the safety bicycle evolved from the Penny farthing more than a century ago and we figured it was about time to take the next step."
