Lovely bike mate (and the other one) saw 'em on BC. What sort of power/weight numbers you talking about there?

never really worked it out more worried about balance and handling than the power side of things, i would say the in line is the better at cornering but for straight line speed the transverse with the better carb is much faster, hoping to fit 350 hp motor to the in line soon ill check it out then thanks wob

I would absolutely love one of these.
I even toyed with taking the motor out of my Pontiac to put in one (6.4 small block Chevy, 320 bhp), but would prefer the alloy Rover motor due to weight.

I want the looks of the transverse bike, but with the in-line engine in it.
Not many V8 bikes look good in my eyes (Even though I'd love one), but this one certainly does.

I remember back in the early 90's, there was a guy who built a V8 trike near Bristol. Very minimal, and it never had a gearbox, just one speed straight from the engine to the axle. I'm pretty sure he said that it was good enough for just over 100 mph like this.
Would you say that's plausible ? I like the idea of just the 1 gear, and no gearbox for size, weight and looks.
I fancy it in a hardtail frame, shaft drive and with a 200 rear tyre.
Did you have to uprate the internals in the forks in any way ?
What size tank is it, and what's the range like ? As long as I could get 100 miles out of a tank it would be nice and practical enough for decent runs (LOL)

Sorry for so many questions. :-)
