2 weeks ago first time road test,knuckles type is OK for motorbikes,but steer angle not enough for bicycle in tight turns,so I redesign knuckle turning rod ends joints 90 degree

does this tilt as you turn the handlebar or when you lean? I cant tell.

tilting independent with turning,it rides just like 2 wheelers with yourself balance

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.

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