The bell has rung and this bloke remains on his stool in the corner but still blows rasberries at his opponent/s. I dont get it.

So we have no idea whether he is the real deal or a fraud.

Either way, he refuses to stand up. So the show's over; I'm unsubscribing and moving on.

One year, three months, and three days, and much bragging and chest thumping later....



I never doubted that it could run. But at what cost, both financially, and in terms of man hours? Certainly not as easily as his cocky attitude seemed to indicate. But, hell, after spending thousands on powder coat and carbon fiber, and countless hours cleaning, prepping and rebuilding beforehand...

Still, no video? The old phrase, "Put up or shut up" seems to apply here. Surely a guy smart enough to work on modern motorcycles can figure out how to post a link to a YouTube video...

All I see here is the 12 yo troll mentality that's more interested in stirring the pot and building his thread view count than he is in actually discussing motorcycles, sharing ideas, or PROVING his doubters wrong...


Move on along, nothing happening here...

Move on along...

MM, what you did (or attempted to do) in reviving the HP2 is awe inspiring.

I suspect the bike is running and many of us are honestly hoping that you follow through on the implied promise to see this thread through when you started it.

Don’t let a few inmates upset you, many of us really would like to hear the rest of the story and see a video of the thing running.

I'd really like to see finished photos and video.

Nice carbon Marc!

I just ordered a set of OEM body panels, just the grey stuff and valve cover guards, and sending them to the painter, I'm going with desert sand subdued as a secondary color in addition to my black tail and front fender. The black, red, carbon and sand colored bodywork should look absolutely stunning.

You've perfected the art of giving just enough info to keep the naysayers and rabble rousers stewing over what's happening .... got them hook, line and sinker.

Wait just one minute! I see a HUGE fail here. Did you change your avatar?

I just finished reading this thread from start to finish.

My conclusion--

Whatever rubber parts not ruined in the fire are now likely ruined from dry rot.

I'm not sure if I can picture that...
Interesting.
