Bare bones custom

I'm not sure if I like this bike, it's definitely interesting.

air cooled bro

Springer front end and the exhaust made to look like bones. Well thought out.

But I wouldn't be caught DEAD riding that thing....muuaaahahahahha

lol

EDIT: I take the air cooled thing back. Ford 2.3 liter motor?????? weird. Dunno about the radiator. I don't see one. It's gotta be part of the tombstone I would think????

If you look at the other pictures, you can see the radiator is located in the center of the tombstone, and the ouside is the resivoir for the hydraulic system. The hydraulic oil has to be cooled since it gets hot. The motorcycle is hydraulic drive, and trust me, it will get plenty hot. This is also the reason for the bigger 4 cylinder - to run the hydraulic pump, most likely off of a forklift or smaller heavy equipment.
