A member of EAA Chapter 58, Doug B. is building a Super sky cycle.  The gyro-copter is a street legal, three wheel motorcycle that just happens to be able to fly.  Here are a bunch of pictures of his project.  A single rotor, Wankel engine powers the wheels in drive mode, while a Rotax 912 turns a pusher propeller in flying mode.

Doug is also planning on doing some flight training in an old Benson gyro by towing it behind a truck.  He bought an old Benson and is planning on restoring it with new rotors, but no engine.
