OK, I've braced myself...

Edit—OK, and the white wall tyre!

"suprisingly comfortable"

I'd be surprised as well.  Haven't seen one like this for a few years now.

I've had a few hardtails in my time, comfortable enough (20 odd years ago) until you hit a pot hole  :o , wth the state of the roads now and my back. Nah!

OH! Really Matt?  ;D

The scrotal scratcher on the front of the saddle could be a selling point! ::)  :-\

The black chrome, powder coating looks tasteful and the whole machine appears well put together, when compared to some of the lash ups that are about.

But, I just don't fancy being hung out like a bit of laundry on a line and possibly incuring a coccydynia injury!  :(  Look it up, I have spoken with quite a few ladies who in their youth used to ride on the back of these sorts of machines and now suffer from the condition. Crippling! :(

But if you fancy it Matt, why not? There can't be many others about.

Good health, Bill

Here's an amazing 2 stroke dragster/chopper to really get your ribs tickling!

For a rundown on the impressive engineering - check those drum setups, that 50's aircraft magneto and the expansion chambers;



For footage from the rider's helmetcam, giving THAT sound (turn volume all the way up, sound is low)

Errr!

Fork stiction! those stanchions are going to be like bananas and the slider bushes knackered in no time. Tiller steering to boot! :(

I am afraid this is another nil point item from the USA.

Hurrumph! Bill

I have to say I love this sort of totally pointless madness! Lol. Makes a change from the usual choice of powerplant. Sounds great and probably about 12mpg!! Best enjoyed now before they ban all the fun ;-)

Regards

4 grand. 4 GRAND? Surely could get a lovely XS650 for that cash, aftermarket
Swingarm and all the other bits that make it a great handling contender to the Triumph crown.

I get the old skool chop thing; but you could have something that looks nicer and goes through the twisties AND doesnt knacker your back over holes.
XBR500,  FT500 (USA reg still but now starts/runs nicely!)
non-thumpers CX500EC, NTV650P

looks like it steers like a wheelbarrow full of wet cement. sounds great but the narrow bars were annoying to look at after 30 seconds of him overcorrecting every single steering input.

I’ll have you know John that I can steer my wheelbarrow full of cement like an absolute pro. Slalom cones... not a problem, up a make shift ramp onto scaffolding, absolute piece of cake. However I certainly catch ya drift with the chopper thing. Just never ever understood the concept of them. 🤪
Cheers, Michael

At least it's getting ridden 👍 I'm with Rossco500 on this one. There's definitely a part of me that digs it's groove, man  8)
