Super Rat. The build quality is disgustingly great as usual!! I have to ask about the virtual steering. When I saw it I thought you'd built a duplex steering set up. Any more details on it please. I've been dying to build a duplex set up for the sidecar but I've been too nervous to try it.

Hoof, I have been working on the "V-Steer" concept for a couple years. I want to do some trial runs on it before I do any celebrating, but the rake/trail calcs look sound. I felt that Carls small displacement "Lakester" would be a great test bed for this before I build a 200+ machine. I have a new design that incorporates a couple inches of wheel travel also.

Build looks awesome as usual. What's the benefit of that type of steering setup?

excellent question. the benefit is you take what would normally be a 30" forks, and getting it below the top of the tire, this bike is not gonna have any front suspension, but motozombie has one designed that will have suspension. the design allows us to build a bike that you can lay down on and not be any higher than the tire height. low=higher speeds! we have more info and pics on our super rat racing fb page.
