Try this one instead, it has been gathering dust and it needs to see the correct path.

Hey, it's not just gathering dust -- it's preparing for a rebuild (at least my purple one is).

That first bike is awesome, but the four-wheel-leaning thing would really take some tech to work out any kinks.... it's hard enough to get an RC trike that leans to work

Actually they aren't that hard to get to work. I'm building a 2F1R (2 front wheels, 1 rear wheel) or tadpole Plug-in electric vehicle, it will be a tilting 3 wheeler.
So of course I'm first building a RC working model, out of 1/5 scale bike parts. I plan on posting it soon. Still finishing the design spec, making final decisions on the batteries and motor. I plan on adapting a snowmobile CVT to it for better performance and range.
The best tilting full suspension design that I like is actually quite simple and has a lot in common with our RC Bikes, more than most people would think. I'm combining ideas of a few designs I like. I'm doing a 3 wheeler, first because I really like them and second 3 wheelers are considered motorcycles and are easier to get titled for the street. It will be single seat, the driver will be low and laid back like a race car.
The thing that sucks are the batt prices, I'm looking at $6K in just batteries to start with the ability to hold twice as many. I will be using LiFePO4 batteries from Lifebatt.com.

Don't hate me too much, I'm just getting started (it was either this or buy a convertible, this seems more fun). It will probably take a while to build and a nice chunk of change. The high-level design is done though and we are moving forward.
I'm guess the cost to be between 10K and 15K US.
I'll be using as much off the shelf MC parts (and others) as possible.

I saw this bike (or something really close to it)on the street a couple of months back riding with some other bikes...didn't know what it was until now....it did look pretty neat, even if it's just a rehashed atv...
