Awesome Dream Bike
This is the third bike in my series of single cylinder bikes, the others being 'Skeletor' and 'Camel Spider'. This time, the engine is canted forward horizontally and the entire powertrain flows backward in one continuous sweep, much like a current style scooter. Both the intake and exhaust form an arrowhead. Frame structure is 'adventurous' to say the least, with a large box section member connecting steering head to swingarm via engine with an additional frame loop from steering head to engine. The forks start off as cylindrical but morph into a more ellipsoid shape. The 'winglets' mounted outboard to the lower edge of the fuel tank, fill a gap as well as adding a dynamic mood line to the front end. The front disks have ceramic inserts.
