Ironic that a German company names their bike after a British Great War fighter built to shoot down Germans.....

Sorry Mr Hopkins, but the Boss Hoss BHC-3 502 V8 is the biggest production bike in the world by a long way, and it is in production and is ridden.

I'm not sure that they have ever made one, note the mock up engine, and if it's that one with the rotary aircraft engine in it then it's only for looking at, not riding, We've got a Rocket 111 round here, guy who owns it has a pub in Cardiff. When they get older I might get a second hand one if I can still walk without a zimmer frame. It's getting so that bike shops think I'm too old to test drive anything over 125cc John

at a guess, that'd be because they have only just started...
the website has changed from 'here are some drawings of something we'd like to build, does anyone want one' to what it is now.

Default Bos hos

Ok so it is a lot bigger, But it's a twist and go. doesen't that make it a scooter. I don't care I still want the triumph, I'm not old enough for a twist and go yet. anyway I can buy a triumph today for less money than a house costs...Ok you've shot me down in flames again...Just make me happy by telling me that it costs megabucks and does a top speed of 20mph and you can watch the petrol gauge drop as it goes up a slope. John
