    Kim_dude, it operates like a normal bicycle. It goes one direction and steers on one side. Funkme, the third stooge is behind the camera.

    Posting to youtube was the best I could do. But here's proof it's rideable.

    I'm working on uploading a video right now, I'll post that as soon as I figure it out.

    Don't have a picture but during the few test rides I've taken, the bike rode great on and off road. I got the chain working properly (and not fall off). The fork was the weak link this time... that's what test rides are for... so I've worked the last few days to make them stronger. Handlebars...

    I've gotten a lot done in the last week or so and haven't posted any of it. So here it goes... I built two adjustable seat brackets. There's wing nuts on the bottom to loosen the seat and slide forward or back. I took the gear off an old derailleur and made a bushing in the lathe so it spins...

    I got the frame done, but it's still on the jig. It's time for all the small pieces now. The chain tensioner is coming together nicely, it's almost time to tach it to the frame and get the chain in place.

    Another night, another step in the right direction. Almost looks like a bike this time!

    Belt would be a good idea. I got the forks, cranks, and seats where I want them tonight. It's just a game of connect the dots the next couple days. Spent a lot of time tonight looking at tape measures, plumb bobs, levels, squares, and straight edges. Glad the hard part is finished!

    This thing is going to be a monster!

    Got a little bit of finish fab left on this fork then I get to do it all again on the rear fork.

    Didn't get the forks done like I had hoped, but progress was made. I thought it might be worth while to build a jig... I have a feeling I'll be building more forks in the future.

    Tater, if you look at my first drawing you'll see the chain on the rear (left side) is going over the sprocket instead of around so pedals go opposite directions. Uncle Fide, I have a neighbor that owns a laser cutting shop. I drew up a template and took it over to him.
