Looks like it would have the cornering ability of the QEII, not very practical in a motorcycle, plus it looks too much like a chopper which to my mind are the stupidest looking motorcycles on the road, just the antithesis of what a motorcycle should be, how anyone can feel comfortable riding a cycle with their arms above their head and their feet at chest level just baffles me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

What radial engine was used?

Sorry, it's been done before with a much neater installation too.

Don't think I fancy racing the Megola at 140 km/h with that sort of gyroscopic effect and unsprung weight on the front wheel.

I just like bikes that can go round corners......Ducatis, MV Agusta, Moto Guzzis, and the likes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

LoL, you'd learn quick how to properly ride a motorcycle. Turn (in this case strain to turn)handle bars left to start a right turn.
