Default here is another picture, the proof!

This photo was made during a low-speed pass past the camera. The motorcycle will stand on two wheels at about 8km/ph(5mph). No side wheels, so when it stops, it falls on its side (check out the protection bars).

Default more info

Hi

It took about 4 months to build, but this was not a full time job. The photo's are actually the fourth version. The first three were uncontrollable. After figuring out the dynamics the hard way, this is the first properly working version. I'm am particularly proud of the disk-brake, check out the photo.

greetz,

Peter

here are some funny ingredients I used:
1 HP deskjet 500, for main gear and all axles
1 ericson gsm for lithium powersupply to receiver
2 airplane wheels, modified to fit the rims
1 pvc sewage pipe for rims
about 5 euro's worth of scrap aluminium

kids: don't try this at home! (unless you have a spare of each)

YOU ROCK DUDE!!!

I've seen the department store bikes which work but are only worth having for their short lived cool factor. I'd love to see some video. Do you have plans for a body or rider?

Default rc motorcycle forum

I'm hoping to get a special motorbike forum. I have found other enthusiasts asking for the same. Even though the amount of people with these machines is not even close to any ohter usergroup, I'm sure that this will stimulate others to take up these airplanes of the road.

Default no wheelies

Sorry, no wheelies, as the front wheel is heavy!!!! There is a ring of lead inside the tire to increase the centrifugal forces that keep it upright.

I find racing in circles boring. The bike can steer in any direction at any speed, keeping in mind that shifting to much balance may cause the bodywork to scrape the road and lose balance(done that) (yes, the trick is not steering: the front fork is loose and will follow the right track any time, all that needs to be done is weight shifting)

more on that soon. It's pure physics.
