I made this last year in tech class with there welder. I learned most of my metalworking from this project too, so as dumb, or cool as this might be I took a lot from this build. I love riding it, although its not the most conferrable it defiantly turns heads. Funniest thing ive heard about someone talking about it was "man, that thing is almost as long as my d***" haha, and the chain is two 96 link-long chains put together, with 20 more links in there too. so the chain is like 10ft long, and holds up great.

Was there any flex in it at all? Seeing as how there was no angular support to the rear tire.

There are two pieces of metal that connect the two long angle pieces, and yes it flexes. it would be hard to make it not flex and look like this with the material that I have. I had a 250 lb teacher ride it too.

i dont think it would be that hard to pedal, its only like a extra 50 LBS.
by how it steers, do you mean turning radius? if you dont, then i guess it steers like a regular bike.

feels like youre drifting on a bike, its quite the trip. its like 20 extra lbs too. it probably has a 3 foot wider turning radius than a normal bike too

Id imagine this thing is like driving a car (Normal sized bike) Compared to a Straight line Fire-engine. (No middle pivot)(This bike)
