Lightbulb Trying to find info on a prototype steering set-up...

I seen this prototype in a magazine years ago. It was a bare-bones minimalist bike. Steep head angle/short fork. It had a prototype fork/steering set-up. The fork was connected at the top by a ball universal type joint. There were two links at the bottom connected to the frame(set wide for clearing the tire)...

The point of it was that when you steer it, the wheel shifts to the outside of the turn(triangulating), and offsets/couters the weight of the bike, and therefore there's either no need, or very little need to lean the bike through the turn... Because of this design, the bikes frame was incredibly close to the ground.

Anyone know what this was, who made it, or where I can find some info on it???

Thanks in advance for any helpful info.

That sounds gangster and all but,Why would you not want to lean?I mean...Really,If there is no lean there are no evasive manUers,So anyway I have no idea what you are talking about but Good luck this isnt a sport bike is it?
