This is a 1913/1914 Feilbach Limited. One of only 2-3 known to exist. At least when this video was taken back in 1996. Feilbach's were manufactured from 1904-1914 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. And yes, Jeff and Norm did take it out for a ride once in awhile. That's what is was made for! To be enjoyed, not locked in Jail or a museum only to be looked at.
