Revisiting old friends – Tilting Quad

This small vehicle has a special feature. It leans into corners, like a motorcycle! Intended as a fun machine for use in town or in the countryside. It could be a petrol-electric hybrid (using a rotary engine mid/rear mounted) and assisted by an electric motor driving the rear wheels. It can carry two people, in tandem (one in front, the other behind). Although this idea seems a little crazy, I have built two trikes that operate on the same leaning suspension principle, so I know it works…
