Oh!!! I've seen this in KL several years (atleast 15) back. But the steering was of black in color & reminded me of AL's steering. Initially I used to think it had a play & I was blown away thinking how come they turn without using a rack & pinion (didn't know the techy term at that point). Again after few years I saw someone riding the cycle with steering & found they also turn as regular handle bars & the steering is just a substitute.

I am from a very remote place of orissa (Jeypore) and in my neighborhood there was a mechanic who put a steering in his bike. This story is around 18-19 years old. The steering was from a Mahindra Jeep and was in good condition.

I still remember the fall which I had when I tried using the cycle
