    My wife & I out for our morning ride. I'm thinking of putting a 48cc China girl on it. Do you think it would make it look silly? rotfl

    I would go with a 72T. Just me though.

    That's a great build!
    ...seems they didn't even bother to wrap a garden hose around those rims for a cushion...
    I'd like to see video of them.

    I was sure that was a photoshop deal. But looking at the forks, could this be a real bike?

    Another case of heights not being dangerous, it's stopping that kills.....

    But seriously, you might want to consider a 4-stroke for the torque... takes a lot to get that rear wheel rolling.

    A mix between Jay Leno's Blastoline Special and the bike from Wild Wild West... Exactly

    You might want to invest in an offset intake; the carb may not clear the frame.

    Would have been funnier if the guy in back would have been wearing a Ronald McDonald costume cause the front guy looks like the Burger King.

    I was thinking diesel, maybe, G2. LOL, if yer gonna do some thing that crazy... Might want full suspension though. For the vibrations.


    Tom, keeps making me think of your V8; http://motorbicycling.com/showpost.php?p=472032&postcount=6

    That would be funny!

    Ha, that V8 is priceless... I also agree with Dan, if you're going to go off the wall that far. You might as well think out of the kit, maybe a small propane forklift motor? Don't forget the jackshaft!
