I don't know what it is, but it really looks alot like a Lego bike. Just had to say that for some reason, shoot me.

That is a tough one Lt.Gustl...

Looks like a BMW made in the late 70's or early 80's. Is that a home made fairing?

Andy,

BMW was my first thought too. I've done some digging, but can't find ANYTHING.

It does seem to be a unique bike, it seems it only exists on one website, which has alot of other bikes that don't seem to be elsewhere all good for trivia, but once it is known the well will be dry, here is another bike that you can find on it, there seems to be even less information about this one, I will keep posting these related bikes in order of least known first,

The first bike is based on a BMW and looks to me like a Tony Foale or Difazio design.
The front suspension looks like one of their experiments.
The second is a Feet Forward design, possibly by the same designer again?

none of these bikes are from Tony Foale or Jack Difazio, although this next bike is from one of the most famous builders of this movement and should be a giveaway.

Dammit Ive looked all through the site you are looking at but I cant remember how I got there...... That guy is big on building bikes you sit down in rather than ride on. They have a race for them every year too.

Actually this may not be the site you were looking at, but here are some more "feet first" or "recumbent" motorcycles.
