I saw a similar student-built design at UC Irvine about 30 years ago. It was welded to the donor frame, but otherwise worked in exactly the same fashion.

I'd rather have mine recumbent, like this:

Since 30 years ago, I'd see tilting 3 wheelers in PS/PM magazins
These are my motorbike versions before,I build the bicycle this type becuse most bike can easily mod this way with the front frame kit

A little road test,tight turn & tilting are fine,main column too skinny to undertake torgue when ran over big obstacles,steel cylinder tube should be better

That design has been done before, bit it's nice to see somebody work on perfecting it. I personally don't want to touch that genre.
