    Nice piece of engineering. Looks like quick acceleration on a very quiet ride. Does the Stealth stay upright and balanced on it's own when stopping or do you have to manually lock the tilt?

      I have installed two hydraulic brake calipers to the rear frame. They are mounted over a partial rotor attached to each swing arm. What looks like a foot brake actually is used to lock the swing arms when stopped (is one wishes). More of a "wow" factor when at a stop, or if i don't want to get my shoes wet! The left handlebar lever is hydraulically connected to the rear wheels and the left one to the front wheel. I use two Enertrac hub motors for propulsion. It has 96volts 60ah batteries installed. It was designed, engineered and built by myself. Enertrac assisted greatly. I use Elite power solutions Lithium batteries. For more information see the following information regarding my Stealth. http://www.evalbum.com/3367

        Thanks for that info. I was thinking the self balancing at slow speeds or stopped as more of an advantage for aging bikers with bad knees enabling them to keep on biking. Nice piece of work!

            That is great! Next is to get that front end looking like something from this decade lol. The front end is functional but strait up fugly. Awesome engineering though man. I would be very tempted to buy one.

              I bought the entire Yamaha donor bike for $100 I used the front end "gas" tank and fiberglass side panels. I then sold the engine for $80! The front end had all the gauges, dual headlights, levers etc. At that price I couldn't afford NOT to have it UGLY! :-)
