This looks like it is very nicely crafted. I like the lifting clevis on the fork and the wrench storage spot. It apparently is not very fast at 5 mph. The Roper from 1869 could do very high speeds and it was much slimmer!

A hell of a lot of hours must have gone into making this. Presumably it is using some kind of flash boiler to produce the steam.

Looks like a band type brake (No, not the musical type). It would appear to be called the "Black Pearl" But this guy bears no resemblance to Johnny Depp, I can see where the Parrot might come into the picture though.......;).

That isn't a lifting clevis on the front end, it's a Trailer Queen Hook. At 75 I'm putting them on all my Bikes

I wonder what happens if it is leaned more than 10 degrees when at a standstill? Watch your legs!
