    Ever seen one of these...crazy huh?

     



    Although not mid-engine, the two-stroke Wartburg from East Germany should get credit for having the radiator behind the engine

    The old Saabs did the same thing & was a 4spd on the column too.

    I tried out a Saab like that once. It had a shifter like a big choke button, you pushed, pulled, and twisted it to shift gears. Weird, but simple.
    Like a 2-stroke bike, it ran smooth as you accelerated, but fired intermittently when holding speed. I passed on buying it, wish now I'd brought it home, it was only $50!
