Is the upper part of the rear suspension(the part attached to the top tube), is that spring steel cause I'm not seeing a hinge. There has to be some spring to this cause leverage says this bike should be on the ground using just the riders weight. It is very cool though. I like the tank on that too.
You never really needed t, you had your homegrown sideways. I'm surprised you never seem to have had something like grass track though on the big flat open spaces. No need for a special track. Just take a big roller round a half mile oval of pasture and rope it off.
