Never Seen An Airhead Like This One!

Me thinks that rear cylinder is going to run a tad hot...

Hope the builder got the right side valve clearances correct!

That is honestly one of the stupidest things I have ever seen. I am serious.

I'll see what I can do, though it couldn't possibly be as interesting as a CAT scan of this guy's frontal lobe.

I can see a large sprocket on the rear wheel. I suppose there's a small sprocket bolted to the output flange? What I'd really like to see is the linkage to the shift lever.

That's one way to put a chain on an Airhead I guess.

This fellow clearly lacks an understanding of the principles of the air cooled flat twin.

The right angle headers would claim a few hp.
