    woo hoo. now we're talkin. Would be fun to mount a little Virago 250 Vtwin in that frame. Or even a brigs air cooled twin with an auto clutch arrangement, possibly a TQ converter concealed to look like a primary or something. Lot's of options.

    I was wondering about a 500cc Ascot V-twin. That might be a bit much, though. :evil

    The 600 twin from the Shadow is chain drive. Much easier to deal with than the Ascot shaft. There are chain drive 750 Shadows as well.
    Too much is barely enough.

    If you really are up on things you'd realize this looks NOTHING like a board tracker. It looks like Henderson Four that had the engine yanked and some Honda step thru putter stuck in there.

    Henderson with big honking frame:

    Board tracker, Indian specifically, with frame wrapped tightly around engine:

    This was instantly apparent to me.

    Make it look like that REAL tracker and you might have something.

    I hope they used good quality, long lasting paint on that "J" so it doesn't get rubbed off.

    Not counting the original bike, but the others in this thread are pretty cool.

    I think I need to create my own bike now. I've got a foundry and a machine shop.. at home.

    Well, I liked it. Obviously there's lots of room for improvement. Forks would be the first thing to go, but it's a fun bike, not an artistic statement.

    As I said earlier, a Punsun diesel V-twin would be nice in there with a bit of bodging.
