I'll be interested to hear a bit more. Did the Linear have cable steering?

Here's an odd snippet about the designer/builder of the Linear.

The steering on this model (1986) is controlled by an adjustable rod. I'll take another photo of the steering side & post it later. Will keep in touch.

What an interesting design.
I think the BikeE must have got some inspiration from the Linear.
What is the purpose of the quick release on the fromt of the main body? Does the head assembly remove perchance?

Looks like a good one.
Think it needs a 451 front wheel.
The back end folds under for travel I seem to remember.
No idea on front QR - Fairing mount maybe?

G,day, Yes very interesting to ride to. Both the seat and cranks move for and aft. (I paddle kayaks :lol: ] The front forks & rear fold back under, and the seat also folds down. Total weight is 15kg.
