    How much would this ruin the tire?

    The further you ride, the lighter it gets, the faster it goes. Great as an oddity but I think I would like another wheel to help keep it upright. The thought of an involuntary hot bath if it falls over is not very inviting.

    I love the way you turned that notion around.

    One normally leans into the corner on a conventional bike. Anything between straight ahead and the front rotated through 90 degrees, let's assume left, would cause the rear half to lean to the right, out of the corner - and vice versa. That is because the top end of the pivot leans to the...

    How much would this ruin the tire?

    Impossible to guess. Looking at what appears to be an absence of calculated profiling of the timber roller, I would say that the degrading possibilities have not been addressed. The motor shaft, and the roller rotate at the same speed. The speed of the roller differs, depending on exactly where...

    Not intimately involved with such things but, wouldn't the pivot angle on the two-wheeler cause the rider to lean out on turns? Isn't that the opposite of what you want or is that something peculiar to these machines?

    A New Type of Vehicle

    There is always a better way of doing "it". That's where the fun is. Everything you find or post is potential inspiration for someone else to try something. It's all part of design evolution.

    There may be parade restrictions on such flashing lights with all the mass public gathering protection that may be in place. Called critical mass in this country and it requires certain safety measures/approvals that have confined some of our events to history due to being too expensive to run...

    It is the end result that matters, not that which is replaced, covered up, re-designed, discarded, fudged, etc. If it can't be seen in the finished article it won't matter. The real expertise is in the getting it to that finished state.

    A flashing blue and red light would probably have legal implications. There are alternatives if you are suggesting that there is a need for others to be warned that he is coming. Not wishing to rain on your parade but, what is the likelihood that it could be cancelled? Almost everything else is...

    I can see you now, standing up, one hand on the wheel, smiling and doing a Queen Elizabeth waving impression.

    Dual purpose: Use it as a flagpole and also slide the steering wheel up it to drive while standing.

    Road/Ride Safety

    No, it's not. My Warrior doesn't have a name and the one I am building is called eLecTricks - for obvious reasons. See: https://www.atomiczombie.com/forum/threads/vk3ckcs-electricks-trike-design-and-build.21/

    I miss this bike. Might have been my all time favorite!

    You have almost the same view as you would from the air, and much the same results with a crash land.
