[QUOTE=hardroadking;18225072]the trick to the levitation appearance is pretty cool.
Under the carpet on the ground below him is a heavy gauge steel plate.
A metal rod is welded to it vertically (the cane or inside the cane)
Another metal rod is welded horizontally that either follows the contour of the arm, up to the shoulder and then back down to the seat level where another metal plate is welded for the guy to sit on...the other variation is the metal support rod instead of going up the arm, instead goes straight from the cane height to the seat.

You will never see one of these guy assume the levitation position or stop levitating to go home (set up and take down) because they would reveal the custom made prop. You also won't be able to peak under his carpet / rug beneath him.

For this set up to work, baggy clothing must be worn in the area where the metal frame exits the cane and goes to the metal seat, either through the shirt or through the pants.

Even knowing the trick it is still a mind bender to see it done.

check this short video to see a version of the prop required for the stunt.

Hi LC, great adventure, loved the report. If you are thinking about a TW200 for your USA ride, there's a bunch of us nuts over here:
