Many years ago i built a scale 1/12 Honda V5 RC211V MotoGP engine just for display purpose that was left over after a project.

It was sitting on my shelf and i decided i wanted to make something else with it. After some Web research i found what i wanted to make:

I ran through my parts boxes and found out i had what i needed, what was missing had to be built from scratch. My first attempt for the rear wheels was also to build them from scratch, but i failed to make them a perfect circle. So a buddy of mine had to fire up his 3D printer and make me some:

The engine had to loose its rear cylinder bank in order not to grill the rider with its hot exhausts and also to make room for a fuel tank. A front and rear subframe was built from scratch to hold the fork, radiator, seat and rear axle:

After making all the parts i was looking for a nice retro colour scheme which i found in this Honda CX500 Street Tracker by Kingston Custom:

And here is the result, i hope you like my sense of madness:
