The Inspiration:

So, not exactly a typical "Bike Build" - but after an amazing trip to Maggiora 2 years ago, I knew I had to build something like this if the MXoN ever came close to home...

The Gathering of Stuff:

With help from my assistants, the basic format is coming together.

Still need to sort out the graphics and most importantly, the exhaust!

Its Alive!

I was expecting to have some work to do to get it running, but it popped on the 5th pull and fired off on the 10th!

Of course, it is currently WAY too quiet, but we will fix that.

I dig enthusiasm but they should have a special roped off area for those with ear buster toys. The place is probably gonna be crowded and the thought of being stuck next to that all day does not sound like fun. Still cool though.

Wasnt able to come up with a decent expansion chamber so an old junk Jacobson snow blower I had laying around donated a section of pipe.

I also havent been able to sort out a decent way to mount the front number plate with this pipe...
