Is that for real?

[QUOTE=Syscrush;2142686]

Why was it built? Was it a publicity move or maybe a salt-flat bike? I can't see how it would be competitive on a track. And completely friggn useless for ducking down to get the milk; or is there a top-box in the tail? Where is the gear-change? What happens to your ankle WHEN you fall over? What is the bolt that is about to punch a hole in the rider's forehead for? What if you rode it to dinner and ate too much?

Bizarre.

Thanks for the Egli run everyone.

There were a number of people involved like Morpheous and swiest, as well as RD and myself. But I got Post #1.

Well, I look forward to seeing your completed CB.

Personally I like the 550 better for purely aesthetic reasons: the block is a bit shorter and better proportioned, and the 550 doesn't have that big ugly oiltank to deal with. Yes, the 750 obviously makes more power, but it's still slow as hell compared to almost anything made in the last 30 years, so you might as well have something pretty.
