    My dream build would be a diesel push trailer. It must be big enough to haul supplies and gear for extended trips.The motor would be hidden onder an AC cover. They have good ventalation. I would convert the engine to run on waste veggie oil. This fuel can be had free. If cops get close it'll have a kill switch to quickly turn off the engine. I will build this but may start with the HF 6.5 and upgrade later.

    Make it look like a welder or some thing an' say your charging the battery. lol.

    Is a really cool thought Tom. Can you make your own diesel? I've read a few things on it but seems beyond me. Be cool to have free gas. For a pusher/cargo trailer, I have been thinking a ball hitch so the bike could pivot, pitch and yaw.

    You can make bio-diesel at home. The information can be found on the internet. Or,The engine can burn straight veggie oil so long as it is heated to make it more fluid. The engine is first started on regular diesel, a fuel warmer that uses heat from the engine warms the veggie oil, then the diesel fuel is switched off and the veggie oil turned on. It makes everyone hungry as the exhaust smells like whatever food was cooked in it.

    I would want a gold plated engine, installed on this bike. I would be happy with that.
    If it was my dream build, I wouldn't want it to ever malfunction in any way. I would ride it on special occasions, and keep it shining and polished. :) That's a sick bike in my opinion.

    My 'crazy dream bike' is a Felt Revolver with a Felt Monark fork, a Acme V-twin engine, a shift kit & a NuVinci hub thats modified into a fixie that can still shift! (& don't forget the in-frame gas tank!!) (^)

    I'm riding and still building on mine. Just bought some Avid disc brakes and a new disc brake wheelset (front and rear). Might have to change the paint scheme because the wheelset comes in black...lol. It's the project that never ends...

    What's the difference between "a motor' & "a real motor"?
    Is that your v-twin engine? That's an awesome bike. How many cc's is it?

    Now that you mention it, the cyclinder does look a bit fake. I was wonderin' why there's no seat. That would be a really nice built in real life. Looks a bit too good for a kit though.
