    I was out at lunch last summer and saw one of these parked. Talked to the owner for a little bit, and he said he had to add a few parts here and there including a pair of DOT Harley headlights in order to pass inspection. I guess they really are bare bones from the factory (or assembler or whatever).

    I don't have a great interest in cars, they're primarily just transport to me, but being an Aussie I have always thought that an Elfin could be a hoot to drive. The Atom looks like it could be even more fun on a windy road.

    Those are based on a Miata chassis I believe.

    I take it Killboy doesn't go out during the winter season even if it gets into the 70's? Sure was nice having the highway to myself two weekends ago.

    I was hoping getting pics of me in the opposite lane, using improper turning techniques, while flashing my boobs at the cameraman.

    You're thinking the Exocet.

    I can't decide if this is inspired or insanity

    It's inspired insanity. :eek1

    PS-- I like it, especially down to the chrome fan shroud. Dual port heads and maybe 1600cc so it's got oomph.

    That is very cool. Finally a motorcycle engine I know how to work on! But those fenders are an anti-climax; look like they are off a trailer or sumthin'. :puke1

    It has to be heavy as hell with that VW tranny. Looks like a single carbed 2 port 1600. It's interesting that he kept the fan housing.

    I would love to get a close look at that beast. Not my style, but from the picture, it looks like it is pretty well executed.
