    allen millyard. if I remember correctly from a "classic bike" article, his first cylinder grafting project was as above. he later on built two (possibly one shown above), for each of his sons.
    same chap that has brought us kawasaki two strokes triples transformed into anything from four to seven cylinder variations, a 1800cc v8 Kawasaki z1800, and a 2600cc twelve cylinder water cooled monster based on a kz1300. oh, and a viper v10 powered bike.
