    As I can recall it did not. It had a swing arm type piece that is in chrome. That allowed the wheel to have some up and down motion like a damper.

    It also had 3 wheels in the rear.

    Interesting Russian craft. Is that a rear mount above water prop or jet?

    Love those cigarettes, used to have a Donzi (1 mile per gallon - one motor) ugh....

    Nice snaps

    Thanks for the info. I think that's a torsion bar (the spring) - which is un damped. Makes the bike pretty dangerous over 40 mph

    Yea think the bike is more for show.

    The russian craft is a - It is a USSR Tupolev -

    Tupolev 007 is a cold war remnant enveloped in eccentricity by design and form just like the era it has descended from. Designed by Russian aviation legend Aleksei Tupolev, the Tupolev 007 represents an age when erstwhile USSR and USA were fierce competitors in space technology and USSR was on the hunt for a recovery vehicle which could traverse in unforgiving and frigid Siberian terrain. Hard to understand Tupolev 007 is shallow-draft craft powered by a 9-cylinder Vedenyev M14P radial aircraft engine generating 365 hp. The double-propeller is fixed with the rear prop drafting the front blades to increase efficiency and make operation quieter. The Tupolev could also skim lakes, marshes, and snow at a speed above 50 mph.
