Ok, damn it, I should wait but I just have to answer this. I had a hunch being that motor looked like a plane engine of the times I had to go a little google and find it.

The answer to who rode it and who built it, Glenn Hammond Curtiss, (1878-1930), what he did was aviator and inventor.

It is absolutly amazing what one man (or woman) can do, this guy was amazing to say the least.
