Some work on the front fork and steering column, move to a new workshop, and some great Akira fan art

A predominantly video update, I make some serious progress on the electromechanical clamp for the powered egress
Update to the front end, fixing a broken kiln, and hand machining new cast parts for the front end.
Update to the virtual pivot point assembly, building the front wheel hub & handlebar mount. Also, laid off, moving to a new shop.

More frame work, vertical rear frame bars, triangulated seat back, and additional bar under the frame.
