It was in Douglas Trombull's Brainstorm 1983 where Christopher Walken ride LBW (long wheel base) recumbent bicycle Avatar 2000, the bike of the future.
At the time, I thought it was a great movie. Bit science fiction, psychedelic visions etc. And... a weird bicycle.
Respects to MIT professor David Gordon Wilson of the design. Btw, Avatar 2000 holded non-UCI world speed record in 1982-1983. Only 140 were made in 1981-82. UCI banned recumbent bikes out of "real" bicycle racing world because the aerodynamic advantage or was it too futuristic to this conservative organization?
