Why?? It must weigh twice what any other sport bike weighs and has about half the power.. It looks to have been well executed, but I just can't see the point.. :?:

Yah, me either. A real 650 sport bike would blow that thing away. Someone went to a lot of work for something that won't even lift the front wheel. Well maybe it will but ....

Who cares WHY???
This this is totally awesome. Performance was surely not in this guy's plan. Probably did it just to see if he could...and 'cuz nobody else had done it. Thumbs up all the way. Just my opinion.
