I’ve seen these bikes a long time ago while browsing the internet and always thought it was some kind of one-off specimen.  Recently When I saw someone from Europe selling one, I had to contact him about it.  It turns out that he is quite a fan and collector of such bikes and sent me a plethora of information.

These early day time trial bikes were built in Russia! One look at them and you have to gasp trying to imagine the position you’d have to be in to ride one.  Then the inquisitive ones will wonder how that fork is attached or what it’d feel like to steer with the bars connected to the fork crowns!  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
