That is nothing short of bizarre. And what is frightening, it parallels some of The Factory's current offerings...

Wow what a weird find. The tank-number plate thing is strange. And what is that below the peg, not a kickstand cause Thant makes no sense for a hack. Also, the rusty pipe under the seat... Part of the exhaust?

Quite possible those stripes are hand-stitched, and the purple/yellow choice was really very bold, I applaud the artist's courage.


"facingahead" is upside down

Ho. Lee. Chit.

Small surprise it's on a trailer.

Forget the rest of it, check out the sprocket ratio.

Speaking of sprockets, I notice also an early swingarm concentric counter shaft sprocket.

Has that motor also been lifted about a mile and a half?

Im not wrong, it is a hack, right? Thats what that grab rail, platform and wheel fender thing are?

You guys need to look outside the box and see what innovation can do.
Look at the the rear drive train and see how it works.

X Ray vision says there is a final drive connected to the gearbox output flange. posibly with a disc brake.
Reduced unsprung weight, centralisation of mass, elimination of shaft jacking and drive train lash with little if any increase in mass.
As mentioned concentric countershaft and swing arm.
Got a lot going for it and it is ugly enough to be a BMW.
Did anyone spot the anti dive mechanism on the front end?
