This and other projects of his have been on numerous TV shows. From Extreme RV's on the Travel Channel to a show about Jay Leno's garage on Velocity.

I'd like to know how you ride that motorcycle. Looked on his site but did not see any bikes on there though it looks like his stuff. Anyone know about it?

It's actually a shell built around a scooter frame and running gear -- you pop or slide open the lid and sit inside! I was wondering the same thing, and found a description somewhere in an article about him from one of the hot rod mags.

I forgot to mention. The "bus" can be driven from the upstairs open top cockpit. He merely engages a steering output shaft to the upper level when he wants air...

I found that bike on another site, at a motorcycle show, and it is a Harley under there. You can put your hands through the two holes to reach the controls. I'm thinking you have very limited ability to turn the bars. Fine at speed, but scary for low speed maneuvers.
