  1. Honda did something similar back when with the CX500. They were going to try and beat Harley on the flat tracks and tried to go with a production motor. Their only V-Twin was the CX so they lopped the shaft drive off, turned it sideways, I think ran two of the same side heads, then bored and stroked to get the 750cc to match the XR Harleys. It wasn’t all that good as it couldn’t last long enough. it handled great and went scarey fast …. for maybe four laps, then the water boiled out and it over heated. Honda then made a bespoke twin, but was able to win the championship. It was a 52 degree twin unlike the H-D, based on a Paris-Dakar motor.

  2. art. curiosity. challenge. madness. fear. sometimes bad things happen in people’s brains when they don’t let these things out.
