that looks an interesting mast base,looks like bearing on top and adjustable lower mounting ,very clever,any idea what make,looks commercially built. Wonder what the rods running to front wheels do,rear ends look fixed so not steering links.I want one Iwant one NOW.

The rods running to front are tensioned to prevent main upper tubes bending under "two wheel" loads!
It also looks like the boom can be offset at the mast

Nice find Gizmo!!!!

Looks like a ride height adjustment to the front?? Or suspension dampening via the silver control wheel??

Hydraulic adjustment to the front via the pump handle on the floor of the seat?
It looks as though there may be a mast canting mechanism as well?
Beautiful engineering by some one who has access to some great facilities
