Full chaincase, V-twin, easy to clean unit construction. That's close to a perfect bike for me. :)

About the bike, it looks far to clean a design to be a back street effort. Was it a factory proto-type ?

Wow! Based on the gas tank I think it must have been a scrambler at one time.

Here a few nominations for this thread, all from a recent show.

I'm not normally interested in Harley's, but the aluminum tank and tail on this bike were stunning. Unfortunately some of the details let it down overall.



This 750 Honda was very, very nice. One of the best I've seen in person. It had lots of subtle modifications, including the lengthened gas tank with lasercut emblems.



This bike is definitely one of a kind. It's a Spondon framed CBX built by Tryg Westby, who also owns the harley next to it.
