Coolest sounding bike in the history of 2 wheels - Next to the '99 KX 250 2T or an RC-51 with Satos

SS Swinger and what looks like Buell Front Brake set up - I bet she is a handful to say the least

well they never made huge horsepower, I'd guess it's a handful having that much engine hanging way off on the sides.

Exactly - Curious as to how they handle with center of gravity and all - That is like a small block V8 in a bike

Stewert, Jason and I met a guy in NC who had one. We rode with him (and his friend who was on an old Ducati) on the BRP and up Mt. Mitchell. He could get it done pretty well on that bike. We were impressed.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

That's stunning. Certainly a head turner.

When I was young, I dreamt of dying in battle while defending my country, my home or my honor against a horrible foe. After 20 years of riding a motorcycle on the street, I realize the statistical probability is that when I die, it will most likely be under the wheels be a fat woman in a mini-van who's just missed her exit.

I think that's a Ducati rim on the front and a vfr rim on the back, I'd like a better look at the swinger.
