I know it wouldnt be a practical dirt bike espically for someone whos never rode a dirt bike before but.

I still want the damn thing. Bad ass

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

Ahh, you're sure huh? Because they say "he flipped a 257 kilogram", Which off the top of my head is about 565lbs I think.

Why do you say that? - I think it is a right bit of a challenge and this dude nailed it - Take your SV, add 200 more lbs to it and now try and flip it

Oh yeah, I'm not debating the fact that he did a hell of a job on an unusual project.. But making a dirt bike out of a Harley? Doesn't seem like something you'll use all that often, or very practical because of the weight. Must give credit where credit is due: it's very well done.

aren't you trying to get rid of one? that would sure do it. it will either be the worlds first back flipping 'wing, or it will be trashed. either way you'll be able to get rid of it.
