Platt-Betts' smart little five and a half horse-power motor tandem, behind which he will shortly be doing some speedy work, is said to have a speed capacity of a mile a minute if desired. Since November last the genial little annexer of records has been busily engaged upon the construction of this tandem, which, says the 'Cyclist,' does him great credit as a cycle engineer.
