    all i can say is that bike is a freak of automotive history...dang
    oke i agree that the triangualr box like thing is what holds the tyre and the frame(chassis) but how is the question and also how does the tyre rotate properly without any bumps..and the last pic also shows that the rear wheel is driven by a chain

    that main thing which holds the rim is too large and has a hole in it.
    so the bearings are too bike for that bike.
    did u see the bearings they look similar
    so he made a very huge bearing for the bike and the sprocket is also too big

    gr8 find dude

    I remember, way back in '89 there was a sportbike built that way too. Was built by a Swiss guy called Franco Sbarro. It was a technological wonder at that time coz it was a hubless design, i.e. the wheels did not have any hubs. I think it used to be called the Franco Sbarro dream bike. Follow this link. Got some pretty cool pics

    Actually, the bearings that he used were from the sets used on Main rotors of Helicopters.
