Gives a whole new meaning to 'trumpet style exhaust pipes' that's for sure. Wonder what tune it plays in ?

Why not put some trumpet valves on it,on the handlebars   ;D
Make a cool kill switch,horn and and starter button  ::)

They'd make for some cool M-unit buttons, but that's not my crowd.

As horrible as it might be, it's well made, and if light gauge aluminium chequer plate, probably no heavier than an aftermarket fibreglass set from the 70's. It's a Harley big twin, so built for carrying big fat things......... ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I saw a guy a couple days ago on a trike, painted stars and stripes in heavy glitter, and he was wearing a chrome suit and helmet.  Blinding. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture.  I hope to see him around again soon and take a snap or three.

Very true David, but why wait for the pickup truck that turned left in front of you to shred you, when you can do it yourself? Either way, you’ll still get shredded, so it’s a win/win! ;D

The VW motorcycle thing..............another example of folks with too much time on their hands and lots of parts laying around. They look like something out of a Mad Max film that grew up and retired.

I was thinking that it was one that could be put back to a baja bug or something less repulsive.

I've always considered VW bugs as the disposable cigarette lighter of the car world, so I have no problem with folks modding them. There were millions built, so it's not like they're rare, or desirable. When I was a kid, my dad's generation who'd all fought in WW2 referred to them as "Hitler's revenge", and wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole.

But then again, when I rode my shiny new CB750F home in 1978 my dad told me that "the only good thing to come out of Japan was a mushroom cloud", so maybe he hadn't forgiven his old enemies. I drove a VW bug once, and I just thought it was one of the least exciting vehicle I'd ever driven. I don't see one in my future.......... ;D

I knew a man who had an early Type 1 VW Transporter 'Bus' and he installed a custom stove made out of sheet metal:he fueled it with Duralogs and had a smoke stack sticking out of the faux window behind the driver's seat.
The more it picked up speed,the better the stove worked,kept it warm in there in the MA. Winters.
