I,ve been drawing up some ideas for a SWB, USS, Lowracer/ midracer, forkless bike. Im having a problem with the stearing linkege. Anyone have any ideas?
I made a fast drawing up in Powerpoint (16/20 are the wheels)

I think that's why they invented forks.
Great start Pepper, but just how did you plan on steering it? Gotta agree with John I think...but then I could be just limited in imagination. Where will your steering head be? Is the frame articulated?

You dont use the steering to steer your bike, You rotate the forks to put the wheel back under the bike to stop it falling over. That bike will just topple over.
A forkless bike works, and so does a forkless motorcicyle. Im just tring to figure out how they do the stearing linkage....
The third bike I drew im starting to like better anyway. Its a 20/20 FWD.
