...I figured you meant wire, since I saw piles of it hanging everywhere but I DID go back to see if maybe I had missed a whale in the background...

I donīt see how the front wheels can have any turning effect.
Usually to turn a tracked vehicle you brake one of the tracks.
The Germans had weird tracked vehicles with a motorcycle
front wheel steer.

Maybe it belongs to Rear Admiral David Glasgow Farragut's great grandson?

Like I have said over and over, there is a TON of work and MONEY in that thing, that is what blows me away the most, the MONEY. And often the guy who builds something like this isn't rich, it's not like has piles of 100 dollar bills that he needs to burn up to clear a path to his kitchen. It's like a drug addict or something! Wild, just wild.

I have seen one of those in person at the Dream Machines in Half moon bay, I have wondered the same thing, what is that wheel doing exactly?

No the already own a tracked grain harvester and had just replaced the tracks. The old ones plus a Nova plus their newly acquired Acme "Little Giant Stretched Limo" kit and there you have it. Makes perfect sense to me!

In WW II there were a LOT of "half tracks" that steered with the steering wheel and front wheels, not with differential braking to the trax. I could surmise that the tracks plus front half of a "murdercycle" might possibly work the same way. (Unless there was some sorta posi in the drive axles! )

THAT'S IT.........it belongs to Willey Coyote. He's gonna catch that damned road runner yet. What we can't see in the rear stretch is the rocket booster...

When I was about 14, I went to a car show and a t-shirt vendor had a shirt with Willey holding up the road runer by the neck and under the pic it said "beep, beep yur *****". I literally wore that shirt to threads. Wish I could find another...
