      apparently the bike went back to England so it probably still exists.alledged 3 riders were killed on this beast.

      In looking at it, I would guess it's for a straight, one shot run like drag racing that came along later and was popular. I would say it has an oppressive look to it. It draws you to it. A fellow I worked for years ago drag raced a aluminum block Buick car engine turned sideways. Last time he rode it, it hurt him real bad. It became a window trophy for his motorcycle business.

      ignatz,
      I was fortunate to run down a site that has information on this motorcycle and what little I was able to read today I found very interesting. The motorcycle looks to be on a pallet and is likely some bit closer to the person taking the photograph, making it larger in looks. Still find it very interesting though. This has photo's, and it allows you to see the modifications. Excellent posting!
