Holy crap. That is interesting to say the least. But I still can't stand the radiators hanging out in the open. That is why air cooled engines remain to be the best custom bike motors.

Is that a new Harley motor?

Wasn't there a "new" Vincent using the same?

That freak'n thing must be louder than RC90's screams while getting tagteam pounded from behind by H_Ryder and Midwest!

There you have it. Proof "Anal-iens" do exist!

Well, not 2 of us. Just one - CBRXX, and he is the one who told me all about it.

Yeah, the stock cluster is a dead give away.

I think it's cool, needs paint. Flat black on everything and you got a winner.

Looks good , for a chopper ! Even with a Honda motor ---

Strange, wouldnt it make more sence to put the intake up a bit ? Looks like it will jut be sucking in hot air from the radiator --

I guess the open pipe design was way too loud. I like it. The can is too fat though.

I would love to see a decent job of a "Naked 51" that would be an awsome piece of equipment.

Question

With the motor in the open air does it still need both radiators?

Preferred the unpainted version. Definitely like its funk factor!

I just realized ,this bike has one brake in the front ! Man, the Rc was a pig, they took the pigs heart and made it heavier, but, took away its great brakes - Id never ride that thing !

There are quite a few radial bikes out there, as I understand it all of them will roast your chest nuts!

I like the 51 on the (wasanRC's) tank.
