Does the rider even need to balance that rig, or can it stand up on its own?


Everything about that ride is wickedly cool. The shifter(?) is a nice touch. I would love to ride it, but not all the way to work! Thanks for posting.

Yeah, it doesn't appear to need a kickstand. I imagine on smooth, flat ground it would be a blast-- once it got moving, it would just keep moving. I see one brake lever, but no idea where they hid a brake.

I want to see the turning radius on that thing. Bonus - you don't have to lean on turns!

The antique tractor seat is a nice touch.
