How is this for Avant Garde

Go to the page, they have a neat time lapse video of them building the entire bike and some very careful non-turning videos of it running on public streets.

It ain't practical at all, but it looks nifty.

I guess I just need to appreciate that folks with money sometimes do weird things.

As an engineer......I just see a lot of mismatched parts.

An aircraft engine that makes a lot of torque and HP - mated to a torque converter that likely can't handle the power.
Rims/wheels that can't transmit the power to the pavement.
Suspension and brakes that can't handle the potential acceleration or speed.
A fuel tank that appears to have a 100 mile range mated to a seat and controls that are barely tolerable for a trip around the block.

Can it go around a corner? Huh

Nobody knows, ain't nobody dared to ask it to do that yet (might smudge the purty chrome up).

Newest entry into the odd bike category .......    the things that look like seat extensions for a very big butt are actually DUAL BIG ROUND WEATHERPROOF SPEAKERS.
