That is cool. I'd actually love to build an Aprilia or RC51 cruiser with similar dimensions but not raked quite so much.

Not exactly what I would classify as a cruiser, but she is a beautiful machine.

I would have done a burnout without all that water. Where does all the water go that shot up onto the underside of the tail section? On the tire as you are staging.

Kind of like the CanAm? I thought about that, but getting the steering right enough for tripple digit speed would be difficult.

I have always wanted to go to Bonniville salt flats, this could be my ticket. Now I just need to figure out how to get a 200mph motor to stay togather for 7mi.

I am thinking the way it blew out the headtube, most if not all the damage was localized to that area only. I think the rest of the frame is fine.

Obviously, I will have to have the frame alignment checked. Then have a new headtube welded on with some extra gusseting.

thinking and knowing are two different things. If your really going be going 100+ mph on the thing it's worth KNOWING it's sound and true. PERIOD.

dude, the entire headtube looks blown out. I'd think this would be very tricky to repair. Maybe part out the good parts from it?
