The Best Pedal-Powered Vehicle Ever

This really has to be the most awesome pedal-powered vehicle ever built:

I don’t know the background on the tricycle, but the Maxim guns are very rare air-cooled lightweight models. Like this one:

Lightweight Maxim in .303 caliber

Ultimately they weren’t light enough to justify the much more limited rate of fire allowed by the non-ventilated shroud and lack of water jacket.
