Modern Twist on the Classic Peugeot

The latest from motorbike enthusiast Madella Simone is this design inspired by the iconic and record breaking 1934 Peugeot 515. Unlike the original 4-stroke, this modern 515 powers its rear in-wheel engine with a rechargeable lithium battery. Another unusual feature, it’s also missing the usual hub that linked fork and body; instead, it features a sphere that permits the changing of the wheelbase.

  • very cool! I love the chassis! It’s like unibody for motorcycles.

    I’d love to see more detail on the steering joint sphere. Did you design any provision for locking out it’s adjustment once you set a wheelbase you like?

    Oh please this is totally inspired from this…http://confederate.com/motorcycles/existentialist/

    This bike of American design is coming from the heritage of race-bikes & experiments of those of Harley & Indian.
