|Never went into production. Don't think it actually is rideable. Interesting ideas, however.|

|At the World's Fair in 86' I got to cruise it around Vancover one afternoon before we did the display setup. I actually flatted it! Horrible handling and heavy too. I remember it had a built-in Cateye Solar but it wasn't working so I don't know how fast I was able to go. Not that fast though.
Here's the funny part: The only thing that really worked on this "ultimate" go fast bike was the brakes! They were a hydraulic setup that was sooo smooth, I wonder why they aren't on the market today.

|They exist- Magura HS66's are like the hydro rim brakes popular with MTB trials riders, only with road-bike style levers for drop bars. The ones in the pic could very easily be Magura's, can't tell for sure.
I have the HS33's for my MTB, and they are truely excellent.
