The New Steering Arm

We have been working of the new steering arm for the Borealis for a while.  It will allow us to implement the central steering using the existing bearings on the trike.  The way we had done this previously was to use much smaller bearings and a sleeve that clamped around them which also stuck up far enough so the mast pivot could also be fastened.  Here is a picture of the first batch being made.  The mast pivot and the steering arm are now one part.  A much more elegant solution.
Along with the steering arm we have developed a carbon fiber mast and handlebar.  The first one should be assembled in a couple of days.  Once its together I'll post a couple of pictures.
