sup everyone? Well my friend also named jeff finally got to fly to my location and we went over how i want the bike body built. We got some very good ideas and are going to change a few small things to make this work in the real world. Most notably is we are going to have double stacked head light under the frount wind screen insteed of behind the wind screen. And a few other small changes to make the AKIRA body fit my bike frame. Here is a couple short vidios of my friend jeff in tucson arizona riding the bike. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jytYbSLd ... e=youtu.be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jwEmxLxe_w

Sup? sorry its been awhile since my last post. To anser the question of how it rides. It rides very nice. At highway speeds it rides like a normal motorcycle. High speed cornering is good to. At lower speeds due to the longer wheel base it rides like a recombent bicycle. With the longer wheel base and the steering set back from the forks it takes a little bit to get used to it but once you get used to it it is fine.

My friend Jeff Bales has started to make my AKIRA body for my bike. Iv got some pic on my facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/AKIRA-bi ... 7117318428 I still havent figured out how to post pic here. So i will send Neo some pic and hopefully he can post them for me. Right now my freind Jeff Bales is making the body out of cardboard to get the shape of every thing then we will see what needs to be changed then it will be made out of fiberglass. This will not be an exact replica of the AKIRA bike. It will be as close as posable thought. Some small changes will be made to make it fit the bike i made and to make it work in the real world. I am also changing the headlight style form behind the windscreen the just below the windscreen. The reason im doing this is this bike is going to be rode (alot) and not just sit and be looked at. So i wanted a headlight that is actuly going to work. The head light behind the windscreen i was afraid of it distorting the light to much.
