Can some one explain this to me?

Airbus and Boeing are 2 separate companies so how did a A320 get 757 landing gear?

While it does indeed have dual bogey gear similar to a 757, I highly doubt it is actually 757 landing gear.

It’s a dual bogey A320 gear. I think AI was the only customer, they wanted it for gravel fields or low pavement loading runways.
