A Brief History

October 20, 2008 | By: Garrett

In 1977, Marshall Saville built Cal Poly's first Human Powered Vehicle as his senior project.  It was a standard bike with a fairing covering it.  The fairing consisted of bent aluminum tubes with shrink-wrap plastic stretched over it.  As the picture shows, the fairing is dropped over the top of the rider and the bike. Marshall raced in the third International Human Powered Vehicle race at Ontario Motor Speedway in 1978.
