Clown pedaling a bike paper automaton

Here is a wonderful and complex paper automaton kit designed by the talented PaperPino. This one is entitled Wandering in the Sky.

From the automaton's description:

The three-gear train moves the wheels of the tricycle, and the scotch yoke mechanism moves the bird wings. Connected to the pedals, the clown's legs are linked with a lever system that moves the right arm and the head. With the Removable Inter-locking Pin System (RIPS), most of the parts are assembled without glue.

Here is where you can read more about the clown on a bike automaton on There is a small download link for this free model kit on the bottom of that page.
