Haven't contacted anybody.

I bet he knows Allert Jacobs, who made the super streamlined ICE-powered motorbike. If you look through Allert's site ( Allert ), you'll see they even share a few photos of the comparison of upright vs. recumbent rider position.

There are even a few buildings in the background that look the same.

I wonder if they work together at a velomobile shop...
