I added chapters below to easily navigate through the video.It has a full tilting mechanism on the rear wheels (like a tilting trike), a mono front swingarm and full suspension.

Wheels are from a lawnmower tractor.Frame is built from 20mm, 25mm and 35mm tube with 2mm wall thickness.Suspension bushings and front wheel spindle are from an 110cc ATV I had laying around.


Steering mechanism is made out of old bicycle parts. I also added a steering damper to make it more stable.The knobs to fill the tubes and all cable fasteners were 3D printed./HennyButabi
