Many years ago, I had a delta trike that was front wheel drive and had a fixed pair of underseat hand grips. Steering was done by leaning in the direction you wished to turn (kind of pulling on the hand grip on that side). It was called a Brike, and is still in service (I sold it to a friend at work who still rides it). Sounds similar in operation and design to what you are describing . . . except, of course, it was a trike. Rick

life is too short for light beer, poor fitting shoes or cheap tools . . .
If you're one of the "Politically Correct and Perpetually Offended"- hey, life is tough . . . get a helmet.
I was wandering in the internet and happended upon his article about a very unusual bike. Here’s the first paragraph and the link for the entire article.

You'll have to look very hard to find a bike that's more unique than the Flevo-Racer. At first glance it may look like a normal dual 26" underseat steering recumbent. And it's true that there is a set of handlebars under the seat. However, you'll soon find that they don't do anything. The Flevo-Racer is actually a "moving bottom bracket" front wheel drive recumbent. This means that the frame is jointed in the middle and you actually steer with your legs and feet. If you think that sounds unbelievably difficult, you're right. But if you take the time to master it, I found that riding the Flevo-Racer can be a very soulful and enjoyable experience.
