High speeds. The front fork is set with positive castor like a bascart so the wheel stays true and straight for stability. The motorcycle is to reduce drag and pull the bike in to it's draft, so they can reach speeds of 60+ mph. I think the record is around 115mph. Bicycle version of the Bonneville salt flat board tracker motorcycles.
Here is the 115mph one. It has a straight fork instead of a negative fork.

Not a fixie, but could someone explain to me what kind of drugs the creator of this monstrosity takes? I want to know what to avoid...
I want time overheard 2 guys talking about how this company was awesome and how the designer was an entrepreneur and a really good person in design.

I gotta have one.
I reasearched them, and I found out that they are $700 to $900, which is a lot of money for a cheap bike. It costs this much because they gave them out with Dodge Vipers and made them an accessory. Not many were made, since a lot of people can't afford brand new Dodge Vipers. The small number is why the bike is so expensive.

You can get a nice racer from the 70s or 80s with that money. Something like this would be $500.

I have a Schwinn Prelude I got for 50 bucks.
I remember used to going to the used bike shop and seeing Raleigh bikes and other cheap European bikes with cottered cranks for 50 to $40. Now because hipsters are buying old 10 speed bikes the bike shops can rack up the price to a $100 now. This was over a span of 7 years.
