Why does this look strangely familiar?

Christopher Robin’s newest project is an homage to Old Faithful — Graeme O’Bree's infamous home-brewed bike on which he slaughtered the Hour Record.

Here’s what Chris Robin says about his creation:

« I just want to let you in on my latest project.
Next year I’ll be doing a pretty serious attempt on the hour. My plan is to go at least 42km.
And I will do it an a home made bike in the Obree position.
The whole project is like a homage to him. On the pictures you can see the balsa wood core that will later be draped with carbon fiber. It features a mono blade fork. super narrow handlebar and a 40mm wide bottom-bracket. And of coures the Specialized trispoke wheels.
As soon as the is finished I will do the first test run on the only velodrome in Sweden which is located in a small town called Falun, about three hours from Stockholm. »
