Honda Trike Streamliner - not mine

Maybe this is already posted here, but I can't find it. I thought it was the perfect subject for this arena. I just happened to see it when I was searching for Goldwing parts on craigslist, and it caught my eye.

3 Wheel Honda trike

And just in case the CL ad disappears, I grabbed the photos and description so they'd be enshrined forever here. Again, this is not mine, I have no connection, and I'm not trying to sell it. Just post it here for admiration and discussion.

Listing description:
Health forces sale...this is a one-of-kind vehicle. It took 2 years and $30,000 to build and I must find a new owner for it. It has a '95 Honda Goldwing engine driving a BMW320I differential. It has it's own custom trailer and I have the molds that the body parts were made from.
I am very motivated to sell or trade for a reasonable offer...expires Oct. 7th. Please respond by email or call Keith...

I hadn't seen it before.

It's an articulated trike to boot - the front leans despite the rear axle.

Yes.

I can only assume this guy thought he would go into production and make tons of these with the body panel forms. Those take a ton of work to build!

I have so many questions about this bike.
1. What do all the buttons do on the controls do?
2. How do you make the front section lean?
3. What are the little canard wings for?

It would be awesome if the canards assist the leaning.

I can only assume that the steering wheel/yoke/bars thing both turns the front wheel and leans the front part of the bike.

It's awesome, terrifying, intriguing, and awful all at the same time. Awful only in the sense that I can see myself spending my daughter's college fund on a project like this only to have it completely fail, and not even able to sell the prototype.

I really love it, and can't stop looking at the pictures. Just amazing.
