Anyone recognize this idea, a hubless wheel?

I think these young and brilliant mechanical engineering nerds have been looking to bikers for inspiration. Hopefully in their dissertation or talks regarding their project they happened to mention that one day years ago they watched a show called "Biker Build-Off" and saw Billy Lane of Choppers Inc. construct this idea and with a motor. Take that nerds, give credit where credit is due. A biker brother out did ya years in advance. Bikers 1, Nerds 0, next round...
