I'm more curious of the handling of the double wishbone front suspension. No forks. Very odd steering setup though.

That is a Hossack front suspension. The Saxon Triumph triple that won the European BEARS championship a few years ago for twins and triples used that front end. It was ridden by Alan Cathcart who does tests for Cyclenews and other magazines.

I really like the radiator setup.  Looks like he did away with the thermostat housing.  I see alot of work!
