Am I missing something. Originally thought a trike but can only see two offset wheels. So not single track but not a trike either.

Two little wheels to steer on one side and a large wheel on the other providing drive. Three wheels = tricycle. Originally powered by pedals.

That is better, hard to spot the rear left wheel, though I was expecting something same size as right hand side.
