1980s Sci-fi Motorcycle

In the early 1980s, I was reading a magazine called Popular Mechanics at my Grandparents and in the magazine was a blurb of an article about a new concept motorcycle design that had the engineering world up in arms at the time, if I remember correctly. It was the first time someone had leveled the front forks and brought them into the frame internally. It would be a couple of years before someone actually figured out how to do the design and make the motorcycle turn, but it was listed as difficult to handle by many motorcycle experts, and was never allowed to be produced. Since then, the design comes up once in a while with new takes on how to do this type of fork arrangement. Nonetheless it looked cool in sci-fi movies. I decided to finally model it as I found a parts arrangement that is relatively close to the concept. And it just happened to be a fun mini-build in Technic.
