Well with the crank on that side it would go backwards, I think you're supposed to sit on the handlebars and steer from the rear. Looks like fun but I'd probably get hurt... :lol:
You sure? As far as my mind can tell it seems like it would move just as normal bike would..

This bike works just like a "tall" bike without the "tall"
Only thing is that the chain stays are not strong enough to handle much weight.
I may introduce a second set of stays when I learn how to weld :wink:

Oh okay the upside down frame threw my perception off.

Is there a story behind that one pick?
Not really, perfectly good bike until the guy @ the landfill scoops it up with the :shock: "jaws of death" :shock: to throw it into the scrap pile! I put a different chainring on it, lost the fenders & another set of wheels & it rides just fine now. 8)
