A-Z: Stepping stones

Just added to the gallimaufry: some more stepping stones in the pre-history of the motor cycle including pics of the first IC engine and the three-wheeler it powered (Lenoir); a pic of the ancestor of the two-stroke (Clerk), a flame-ignited IC engine from 1838 (Barnett) and an engine running on wood-gas (Lebon).

First Etienne Lenoir patented the first successful internal combustion engine, then he used it to power a three-wheeler.
