Harley V-Twin powered Sportbikes (Big Twin)

Found this on a blog, bike looks like absolute SEX.

Ever Dream To Change Your Harley In A Racer?

I know a few custom builders who are taking this direction. They take a big American V-Twin and stuff it into a sport bike chassis that they hand fabricate. But itís always for a one-off project. As the opposite, the idea of Curt Winter, owner and designer of Big Twin Racer, is to offer a ready to assemble aggressive riding style sport bike chassis accepting most of your Big Twin components. So he designed a rubber mounted frame with increased longitudinal ridgitity by the use of a unique perimeter style double backbone. Rear suspension is single shock. Critical components such as oil tank and gas tank are rubber mounted so that over time vibration wonít be a problem. The gas tank is also is shaped to fit between the twin backbone and give free movement to the rider. Oil is carried in an aluminum oil tank, mounted low and in front .to lower central mass weight and increase oil cooling by grabbing fresh air from the front. You can buy the kit or ask Curt to assemble your components. To see how it would look, go to War Horse Big Twin..
Here's their homepage.

Yes please...
They're almost in the league of Ducati in terms of clean design....not so sure about the engine though

Knitted motorcycle.

We've seen many materials types used in constructing motorcycles, from metal to carbon, from wood to paper, but this one beats them all.

Theresa Honeywell is an artist! She knitted this motorcycle!! Yes, you read it right, the motorcycle exterior is made out of wool. Amazing.

I can only imagine how long it took her to do this. It must have taken months. An incredible piece of work.

It's so well done, that it has been shown in a museum.

This is one motorcycle that will never be cold...

The tank and tail are ugly as sin, but it's an interesting idea...
