Yes, but I thought we were discussing panheads and only panheads

Nope. Cafe racers. ADV Panhead thread is here. One of the finest, actually.

Question W650

Does anyone have any pix of a Kawasaki W650 lump in a Featherbed frame?? Certainly someone has done that by now.

IIRC it's actually a Sport. Mike Cecchini built it/had it built. Not sure of the entire story but I saw it at the Indy MotoGP in 2008 and it sure looks nice...

I just checked with Mike. He's not a member here but this is what he said about the bike:

Tell them it's 360 lbs, 80 rwhp (vs 58 orig.)..... motor revs to 12k with Guy Martin MBP heads, 750SS desmo cam conversion heads, the gas tank is a 80% scaled down model of the Imola tank made of modern resins that can handle all modern fuels and the gas level sight window is on both sides. Nearly $40k has been spent on the bike during it's 2 yr. construction in 2006.
I thought I had more pics of it but I can't find them now. In that picture it's missing the tank emblems so I'm not sure what other details are different now?.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mike C. at a Daytona Ducati Day Party during Bike Week several years back. He had a beautiful Monster with lots of trick stuff done to it.(At the time I was riding a 95 M900) He can build some pretty damn impressive Ducatis. Cool to see his work again. Pics probably can't show the detail of lots of his work.
