A comment on The Kneeslider a couple of weeks ago from Ace King, points to his own site where he’s designing a “feet forward” or recumbent motorcycle powered by a Honda VF750. It’s an interesting design with double A-arm front suspension, a seat from an Acura, a GSX-R radiator, and a lot of unique pieces created by him specifically for this project. He’s trying to design a single seat practical commuter vehicle and his site shows a few sketches he’s made of possible body shells. He has a 1:12 scale mockup of the completed motorcycle minus the body and he’s going to have his own design contest to see if someone can come up with a design with just the right look.
His site navigation is a little confusing but if you dig around a bit, you’ll see Ace has been building some interesting vehicles since he was just a little guy and this Project VF design looks very interesting.
