I'm obviously an ignorant person.
Can someone enlighten me as to exactly where Nikola Tesla's genius is reflected in this "bike"?
Other than the trite, bullshit intro, that is.

The wireless front brake.

Was there a second link about the wireless brake? How can it have enough amperage to actually stop the bike. And then, I cant trust the reliability of anything wireless
I think GP was joking... based on the absence of a brake cable...

As soon as I opened the link, first reaction was..."eww", but then after a minute or 2....I like it.

Very Steam punk- I like some of it. The proportions are off though. The rear end should be smaller than the tank. The little details and use of brass is creative. I'd hate to actually ride it.

One photo shows no brake cable attached to the front brake and another one shows the cable there, drooping dangerously close to getting snagged in the tire tread. Pretty obvious it can't be safely ridden. Shameful waste of a T120,OIF or not.
