MOPARBOY... this ones for you

Who says you can't have the best of both worlds.... a motorcycle and a Mopar engine.

"This motorbike known as the Rapom is built by Nick Argyle. The builder said that the bike was spawned “from the unusual marriage of convenience and naivety”. After the chassis of his monster truck was sold, he actually used the left over engine to build this motorcycle.

Tipping the scale at 454 kg or 1,000 lb, the Rapom is equipped with a 8,2-litre supercharged Mopar V8 engine (tuned by ICE Racing) that runs on alcohol producing 1000 - 1200hp (depending on blower speed and fuel used)."

The front tire is a 180. I don't even know what the back is. But I don't think he needs a kickstand for this bike with that tire.

The rear tire up front confuses me, must be required for weight reasons but looks pretty silly especially with no mudguard. I've never understood the idea of shoehorning a ridiculously large engine into a motorcycle frame but that thing must be crazy fast and the engineer clearly has some skill.

The thing weighs so much I would hate to have it fall over. No way could someone pick that up. I agree why put a big engine in, but I think we have all seen more things that make you sit back and just scratch your head in awww.
