First of all, check out the new Facebook page for Matus1976's Akira Bike Project, please Like the page and share it
Next, check out my new Video updates, I thought these would be preferable over long lists of images and txt.
First are some work stands to elevate the bike project to a more comfortable working height and to easily assemble / remove the front and rear wheels.
Second, the steering column latch. Just like in the movie, the entire front end of the bike will raise up. Ultimately the very low seating position has the disadvantage of making egress difficult, so unlike all the other Akira Bike like builds, mine will indeed have the powered egress.
There are 3 mechanisms associated with this, various locks and latches, here is a main one that connects the steering column together with the handlebars.

Production Prototype (in case you missed it last update)
This is a highly detailed and accurate 3D model of the current production design, some changes will come about as a result of further testing of the prototypes but this represents very closely what the finished product will look like.
