V-Twin motors are typically the powerplant of choice for choppers…but seeing a ~130 horsepower Suzuki TL motor is unexpected. Combine that with a hardtail frame and knobby tires and you’ve got a bike that’ll get crazy in a hurry.

I’m not entirely sure what the target market is for this, but it’s definitely for someone that wants something different. The motor has 12,000 miles on it and the bike is ready to go. It has a “power programmer” (I assume the seller means a Power Commander?) that has been tuned for the custom exhaust and velocity stacks – a previous owner claims the motor puts down 145 horsepower. Here’s a video of the bike in action:

The seller said he’s got this bike on eBay, but he’s willing to sell it privately for $10,000 here on Craiglist in Reno, Nevada.
