Has anyone had experience of such a heavily raked front wheel? I would have thought it would have made steering less responsive, unstable and the forks highly stressed in a bend when the point of contact is far from the centre line.

But then it looks great and is that the point - form over function?

Most definitely, form over function. A most impractical contraption. It's all for show. But great fun, I'm sure.

Except in this weather - far more practical than the average saloon car ....
