+1, very similar style of subframe that I'm looking to build for my 1st gen. So simple and functional.

There's a limit to what you can do with pushrods and a single-pin crank. That engine would make more hp if it could rev higher, but it physically can't. For the type of engine that it is, that's a respectable power output. Also, as Boldor pointed out, with that type of bike, it's not about peak hp but useable power.

If Only...

If my RD came with this attachment, I might've taken better care of it. How tiny is she?

I really do like that Sportster. Maybe those are rear wheel readings then it makes a little more sense.

Or maybe they should have started with a Buell Thunderstorm engine?

Anyone know the manufacturer of this trailer. I remember seeing a "sportbike trailer" at a trade show a long time ago, and have never found the manufacturer again.

Re: The Cafe/2Stroke/Single/Twin/Brit/Euro/Cool Bike Pic Thread

I just spent the last week and a half looking through this thread. It is, without a doubt, a marvelous collection of some of the best bikes on the net. To add my bit, here's a bike I was in love with about 10-12 years ago. I'm not sure what was wrong with me.

Here's another bike that belongs on the "cool" list. I've never seen one in person for some reason. The Fischer MRX.
