Well I guess you have seen this one before. Since that is the same bike without paint, powder coating or lights.

That concept was made by Billy Lane, a custom chopper builder.
That bike doesnt looklike one of his, the idea must already been copied. The rims on that bike have been around for about 2 years now.

on the rear rim the lip acts as the sprocket. This one seems to be some kind of gear type drive, the original one I saw was a belt drive.

the front tire rides through the housing that craddles it

Looks really neat... I kinda like it in the flat black better.
I've seen choppers with no rear suspension. this is the first time I think I"ve seen one with no Front or rear suspension...

If you look at the pictures, you can see that it does have suspension. There are cut outs on the fork legs that allow movement. On the back.......I'm not sure.

Yes, I like choppers. If they are rolling art. That sure qualifies!

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Looks like Billy Lane has made bikes with a similar hubless back wheel. This is a pic from his Camel Bike.

Definately different! But I wouldn't ride it very hard, looks like the forks are ready to snap off!

BTW, don't let Vcook near one of those...he may get sucked in by the open belt and it's all a trail ride from there!

Look again at that suspension. The only bump it would damp would be if you are parking your bike and hit the curb. The angle of the forks is so aggressive that if you hit a good bump you'll may break the front end completely off the bike.
