    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.
    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.

    This is no invention but engineering, I saw some people/companies copied my design but my builds are alway new project of my own
