Post Sale Update: After 17 bids, this crazy bike sold for $1,925.
We don’t even know what to call this, so we’ll forget the naming and just describe what we see. Take one frame from a 1979 BMW R65, yank the engine and instead throw in a V8 formed by two 4-cylinder Honda 350 engines housed in a custom crankcase and crossplane crank. Oh yeah – it runs EIGHT Mikuni carbs. Have fun syncing those.
Before you read any more, you just have to listen to this thing fire up. We can’t stop watching the first 30 seconds of this video over and over again, so just enjoy:
Unfortunately, there’s a catch. The seller notes that his creation has developed a knock, and though he thinks the issue might be a broken piston, one gets the idea that he’s done working with this and just wants to move on. Want to learn more? The Kneeslider seems to have been the first source on this bike back in 2010.
