Absolutely outstanding!  Looks like if the Terminator was a motorcycle!  I like the photoetch mesh over the headlamp, those welds on the tank and the overall look...

How did you achieve that hammered finish on the round piece on the front of the engine there?  That looks amazing!

Both those bikes are phenomenal!!  

Still speechless [me; can you believe it?]

Okay, one thing:  I can't wait to see those bikes on the table at DSC-18 next April!!!

I'm privileged to be able to count all three of you guys (Curt and John and Steve) as friends!

Imagination, invention, and craftsmanship at their best! These bikes are outrageous in the same way as the Blastolene Special. Only question- are the gas tanks big enough to feed these beasts?

I know real bikes exist with these engines and I wonder if they were actually durable considering the massive torque generated. The side mounted style would probably exert a manageable front to be back torque while the other mount style would have a sideways twist to manage.
