Pretty sure it is real and the frame is made in the UK, I think you need to source your own engine though.

Looks like there are 4 variants now:

Aye, after reading the website's blog, they've made some parts but nowhere near a complete bike yet. Has been around for some years now too.

just checked every page of the website, this bike does not exist, you cannot buy a frame, pure mental masturbation for the limey tea and crumpet dreamers who think a 34 hp pushrod motor is cool
