fantastic piece of work.
And what do we learn from that?
The front wheels negative is the rear wheels positive trail?
Since the entire body sits on the front part, you'll need the handlebars for
steering, hence no leg-steer.
And you still have the inverse pendulum effect, to straighten the bike. 
Also, it should be possible to replace the rear part with a two wheel end.
Thanks to the steering angle and this FWDRWS configuration the entire body is
subjected to lean-steer which should allow for a narrow wheel base in return...
