Spotted this one on the weekend, that would be eight foot long forks on the front end of this homebuilt unit, the owner says it's rather difficult to ride... :laugh:

<span style="font-style: italic">"Let's see: I have 24 feet of this steel tubing. What shall I do with it?"</span> :wink:

See that aero-trike in the background? I have a neighbour who has one just like that. He rides it everywhere. Even in the Winter, he's out in it.

"it's rather difficult to ride"......


Of course it is. If it were easy to ride, they'd all be made that way.

Sometimes you just gotta wonder.

It might say something about me but I was staring at the forks so much, that I didn't even notice it was a bicycle at first.

Oh, I was also wondering whats in the tank? Did you ask James?

Why did he build it? Because he could... Or something like that... :lol:

Oh yes, the big tank, quite simply for the bike horn, apparently it has the potential to be quite loud although he didn't demonstrate for us...
