I can't decide if this is inspired or insanity

It's inspired insanity.

PS-- I like it, especially down to the chrome fan shroud. Dual port heads and maybe 1600cc so it's got oomph.

That is very cool. Finally a motorcycle engine I know how to work on! But those fenders are an anti-climax; look like they are off a trailer or sumthin'.

It has to be heavy as hell with that VW tranny. Looks like a single carbed 2 port 1600. It's interesting that he kept the fan housing.

I would love to get a close look at that beast. Not my style, but from the picture, it looks like it is pretty well executed.

The VW engine in a BMW was a mid-'60's fad. There was just enough room to shoehorn a VW engine into a /2 frame. Duane Ausherman had one:
