I think the bar running from below the saddle to above the rear wheel is the world's first kickstand.

Who'd have thought the kickstand was invented before brakes, pneumatic tires or gears.

I would go to your event, weird and cheap as it may be, and consider it a privilege. And yes, too soon for Bintang!

What a great lead-in to the invention of the bike. Well done!

This sounds spectacular. Cheap and weird pretty accurately describes my college life, and that was a pretty good time.
