I love it.
No comments on the girder fork?
John Britten used a girder on his race bike many years ago.
About a quarter down the page for those interested.

I rode a restored Square 4 around the block several times, super smooth.
The cranks are counter rotating and herringbone geared together.
The intake is just an open plenum on top of the very hot head, so compression must be low to avoid detonation.
